More than 7 million kina has been secured to roll out programs to address Family, Sexual And Gender Based Violence at mine site communities.

The program is an initiative of the PNG Government in partnership with World Bank who has injected 7.9 million kina for the program, and will be managed by the Mineral Resources Authority.

In a statement, the Mineral Resources Authority said it is believed that family and Sexual Violence in landowner communities at projects sites in the country is an issue, and if not addressed adequately can contribute to the break down in family units and other social problems and subsequently the operations of mines.
