ICRC website, 07.06.2018, Photo gallery: “On 26 February 2018, a 7.5 magnitude earthquake hit parts of the Highlands of Papua New Guinea, significantly affecting the Southern Highlands and Hela Provinces. Months after the devastating natural disaster, people from the affected communities are still in need of assistance. Clean water and shelter are some of the most pressing challenges people are facing within these communities as they work to rebuild what was lost and regain their self-reliance.

The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) and the Papua New Guinea Red Cross Society (PNGRCS) have been working with the Highland people to assist in the rebuilding and rehabilitation of their communities.”
