ExxonMobil PNG volunteers commemorate World TB Day through awareness in local schools

A total of 30 ExxonMobil PNG (EMPNG) volunteers commemorated the World TB Day during the last week of March in two local schools in Hela and Southern Highlands Provinces. A team of 10 EMPNG volunteers visited Baguale Primary School in Southern Highlands while another team of 20 volunteers visited the Komo Catholic Primary School in Hela. The volunteers, who are ExxonMobil PNG staff, visited the students, teachers and parents with brochures and posters to raise awareness on TB. The main message for the awareness was that TB is a serious disease and if not treated early, it can be fatal. However the disease is curable and preventable.
