JID DONATES TO PNGUoT

The Jonstaff International Development (JID) donated a vehicle, a large Toshiba printer, and Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), to Papua New Guinea University of Technology (PNGUoT), following their engagement at the ANGAU Memorial Hospital in Lae.


The used-vehicle was brought to the campus last month after the team from the Unitech Stores and Transport, and the Bursary department met with the JID team at ANGAU.
The vehicle which is now at the PNGUoT Transport facility will undergo maintenance and repair before it can be used. After the maintenance and repair of the vehicle, it will be handed over to the University’s Bursary department for office use.
Assistant accountant for fixed assets, Ms. Ramona Taraika said, “The vehicle will be repaired and later transferred to the accounts department because the department has no vehicle and that is what we are planning to do.”
Mr. Norrie Nibbor from the Stores and Transport department told the team that the vehicle will be at the facility for maintenance.
“We will collect the legal papers and other necessary documents for the vehicle and also register the vehicle before we can transfer it to the Bursary department,” Mr. Nibbor said.
The donor, JID International is an Australian-owned, Pacific-focused international development partner for governments and international donor agencies, that engage to design, manage and deliver fit for purpose and sustainable outcomes for communities across the Pacific.
JID was engaged as the contractor at the ANGAU Memorial Hospital, and provided services such as health programs and projects advisory. The company started work on the site (ANGAU Memorial Hospital) in April 2018, ending in August 2022.
On Wednesday the 15th of May, the team from PNGUoT collected the PPE’s and signed the transfer documents to officially handover the vehicle at BSP Lae Commercial Centre-downtown.


The university representatives expressed gratitude for the generous donation made by JID.
