We are pleased to announce that Lautrec is partnering with Oxfam New Zealand on a project called FLOW (Fostering Lasting Opportunities for WASH). FLOW is focused on improving the health, resilience and quality of life for remote and vulnerable communities, particularly women and children, in rural Papua New Guinea (PNG). FLOW seeks to impact 30,000 lives in partnerships with schools, rural communities and health centres.

This is the culmination of over two years of planning and we are excited about the opportunity to work with Oxfam New Zealand, Oxfam in Papua New Guinea (OiPNG) and local partners to provide engineering (structural and water) expertise and other forms of support to both organisations.

Misery’s Mural which has been sponsored by City Rail was launched today to raise awareness.  The mural incorporates water to represent Water, Sanitation and Hygeine (WASH) as a lot of this project will be about equitable access to water in both quantity and quality.

Tanja Jade McMillan (Misery) is a well-known pop artist starting off as a street artist over twenty years ago.  The mural conjures up memories of her mum talking about her time living in PNG and can be viewed on 1 Queen Street.  In October, the panels will be auctioned off.

First 50 individuals to donate $1000 will receive a limited signed print.  Go to https://oxfam-flow.raisely.com/ for more information and to donate.
