THE Solomon Islands PNG Association has thanked South Bougainville MP Timothy Masiu for donating K40,000 towards the purchase of medical equipment for the National Referral Hospital in Honiara.
Association president Denyse Ealedona thanked Masiu for the donation towards their appeal.
The association used Solomon Islands’ 40th Independence anniversary celebrations to raise funds for the purchase of an electrocardiography (ECG) machine and a suction machine.
Masiu who was the guest at the celebrations by the Solomon Islands community in Port Moresby had pledged his support to the appeal.
Ealedona said Bougainvilleans always had a good relationship with the Solomons given its proximity and links to the Shortland Islanders at the border.
“We hope that the gesture by the minister will further strengthen our ties and the long relationship that Solomon Islands has with Bougainville and its people.”
Masiu urged the Solomon Islanders especially at the border to continue to foster harmonious relations.
