Kapuna Hospital Rebuild Project

This is a big project and we need a lot of support.

Kapuna Hospital is wondering if you would be able to support the project.

We are in need of the following volunteers:

Construction/Site Manager (1-2 years)

Who we are looking for

We are looking for a professional construction program manager with significant experience in building projects and knowledge of materials in hot/humid and/or tropical-and sub-tropical regions. Knowledge of PNG/Australian standards or similar international standards in hot/humid tropical zones, would be preferred. Preferably you have a lot of experience in site management with previous building-and infrastructure projects. In order to live and enjoy life in this remote place, it would be good if you are flexible and a team player. Other than this we are hoping that you are open to have fellowship with our community and respect the hospital policies.

International Building Teams (2-6 weeks)

Who we are looking for

We are looking for a volunteer with experience in building projects and knowledge of materials. Preferably you have experience in building with local materials (mainly timber). In order to live and enjoy life in this remote place, it would be good if you are flexible and able to cope with different living conditions. Other than that we are hoping that you are open to have fellowship with our community and respect the hospital policies.

  • Kapuna Hospital Rebuild Project

    Kapuna Hospital is a health facility situated in the swamp of the Gulf region of Papua New Guinea. The area is very remote with no roads in the area and the nearest airstrip being an hours travel away by motorised dingy. Kapuna hospital serves 35000 people in the area and is the only health service provider for these people. Kapuna Hospital is planning to rebuild the hospital as the facility is 70 years old and is getting run down. We also hope that we can upgrade the hospital from a health centre level to a rural hospital level health facility. We hope to start the project in November.
