THE Papua New Guinea Business Coalition Against HIV/AIDS (BAHA) received a K50,000 boost from the Rimbunan Hijau Group of Companies yesterday.
Rimbunan Hijau, through its charity arm RH Foundation, presented a cheque for the amount as a gesture of continuous support for the work of BAHA. 
BAHA general manager Caroline Bunemiga received the cheque from the RH Foundation legal officer, Pia Dometa.
She thanked the foundation and said the donation was timely as they were preparing for the World AIDS Day on Dec 1.
“The longest supporter of BAHA is the RH company and BAHA is grateful to have its continuous assistance.”
She said other corporate companies must recognise this effort and support BAHA.
The money will be used for operational purposes.
RH Foundation is the major sponsor of BAHA, having sponsored it for over three years now.
The foundation said the assistance was to support BAHA with its mission to educate and help business enterprises develop and implement policies and programmes that promoted the prevention and treatment of HIV/AIDS.
RH HIV/AIDS programme coordinator Janis Eryl Jandayan said the assistance was intended to disseminate information on the control of the disease, promote healthy lifestyles and awareness about the effects of HIV/AIDS in the country.
BAHA is the key organisation that represents the PNG private sector response to HIV/AIDS by facilitating information sharing, permitting economies of scale in the development of workplace HIV/AIDS products and services and creating a strong front for public policy debate and advocacy
