More power to the women who are HIV positive to help them live a good life.

Thankyu, Barbara Pagasa, for sharing what you are doing with the group of ladies in Mt Hagen.

Papua New Guinea ladies need more people like yourself for their everyday experiences [good/bad] to be heard, especially those that the communities around them disregard them because of their circumstances.

Thanks for this wonderful story about the Mt.Hagen Handicraft Group and its coordinator, Barbara Pagasa.

I treasure my small collection of beautiful bilums. It is good to hear that they are a means of providing income for the needy in Mt.Hagen.

Let's hope that they don't get exploited by some business person who comes in and takes over the marketing and creams off the profit, as has happened at times with indigenous art in Australia.

It is encouraging to hear that these mothers with HIV and getting medication and are able to look after their children.

The mutual help provided by the Handicraft Group in Mt Hagen is excellent and should be copied in other areas.
