The Ombudsman Commission received a complaint in July 2020 regarding the alleged lack of proper drinking water connected to the Laloki Psychiatric Hospital in Central Province.
The matter was referred to the National Department of Health and the Laloki Hospital Management to seek technical assistance from Water PNG.
A Memorandum of Agreement was communicated between NDoH, the Laloki Psychiatric Hospital Management and Water PNG. As per the agreed scope of works, Water PNG laid a new water pipeline from 9 Mile to Laloki Hospital.
The project was completed and officially launched on 12 April 2022. Constant water supply has now been flowing throughout the Hospital Facility.
