PNG Walkathon for Kevin Neuendorf's Kids

Hi Friends & Colleagues,

This is for Kevin Neuendorf and his wonderful kids –  Hannah who is 15 years old,  Olive who is 18 years old  and  21 year old Jeremiah ,who  Kevin left behind when he sadly and unexpectedly passed away in August 2020.

For all those who were fortunate enough to meet Kevin, you would surely agree that he was genuinely the nicest guy around. He was extremely soft spoken, compassionate and always willing to go out of his way to help his friends, colleagues and broader community. His genuine love for his country Papua New Guinea and its people was evident in the manner in which he thought about the future of the country and its younger generation . He  strongly believed that good education was the key to a successful society.

Both Kevin and Numa  his wife made several personal sacrifices to provide a good education platform for their kids through an Australian education.

Hannah has 3 more years of high school left, while Olive is undertaking her university degree in  Bachelor of Occupational  Health & Safety Science (Honours) with 3 years remaining. Jeremiah is in his final year completing a Bachelor of Fine Arts.

Kevin’s passing away has understandably put a lot of burden on the family. By way of this fundraiser, we have decided to setup an Educational Trust Fund,  hoping to  raise sufficient funds to fulfill Kevin’s legacy in giving his 3 wonderful children an opportunity to ensure that Kevin’s goal to see his kids develop into well-educated and responsible citizens can be achieved.

This support is very critical to the lives and future of Kevin’s family, specifically the ongoing education of his kids – without your support it will not be possible for the children to continue their education in its current form.

 
There are many people within the Pacific region that have already generously contributed in the Pacific way and we THANKYOU very much. This fundraiser is for Kevin's broader network and friends of friends that will be undertaking the unique challenge that we have set ourselves in the video above. 

For those who didn’t have a chance to interact with Kevin, we are sharing some small snippets of his big and far reaching life through this video.

Understandably this year has been exceptionally tough for most and any contribution or sharing of this campaign is most appreciated. Please get behind us and help support the Educational Trust Fund that we are looking to establish for these wonderful kids who are so close to fulfilling their dreams and their father’s legacy.
