Providing nourishing meals to patients in a heart-warming display of devotion, Bonnie Nui has spent the past decade and a half following in her father’s footsteps, preparing meals for patients in the hospital ward. Continuing the important work her father began in 1982, Bonnie’s commitment to ensuring the well-being of patients has made her a beloved figure among both staff and those under her care.
Bonnie’s father, Nui, served as a kitchen supervisor at the hospital for an impressive 35 years before retiring in 2017. His passion for cooking and serving food to patients left a lasting impression on Bonnie, inspiring her to carry on his invaluable work. Born on August 8, 1988, at the Port Moresby General Hospital, Bonnie grew up in the hospital compound, immersing herself in the healthcare environment from an early age.
At the age of 21, Bonnie joined the hospital staff, eager to contribute to the well-being of patients through her culinary skills. Over the past 14 years, Bonnie has wholeheartedly embraced her role, serving, and delivering meals to patients three times a day. Her unwavering dedication and compassionate nature have made her a familiar and comforting presence in the lives of countless individuals during their time of need.
Recognising her exceptional commitment and expertise, Bonnie’s contributions were duly acknowledged when she was appointed as a kitchen attendance supervisor in 2020. This promotion not only recognises Bonnie’s remarkable skillset but also highlights her ability to lead and inspire her fellow colleagues in the kitchen.
