As a way to address the ongoing violence and disharmony within Koroba and Kopiago District in the Hela province, the District Development Authority (KKDDA) is partnering with Wantok Radio Light to communicate the gospel as well as positive enlightenment to the people and surrounding communities.
At a small presentation, MP and Chairman for KKDDA Hon. Petrus Thomas presented a K200,000 cheque to Wantok Radio Light at their Headquarters in Gerehu earlier this month. The payment will now enable the installation of a radio transmitter in Koroba over the next few months and the broadcasting of gospel content to the greater Koroba and Kopiago area.
Speaking at the presentation KKDDA CEO Hon. Petrus Thomas revealed that the KKDDA has been providing support through a 10% appropriation of its budget to support churches in the district since 2017. KKDDA under his leadership is partnering with Wantok Radio Light to broadcast gospel content through the airwaves with the conviction that through radio light, the people in Koroba and Kopiago will change their mindset, accept Christ and respect one and other in the community.
Present to witness the occasion was Radio Light MD, Mr Bill Yasi and Radio Light Board members, Koroba and Kopiago MP/CEO for KKDDA, KKDDA and Radio Light staff and members.
