The Australian High Commission in PNG had acknowledged the prayers and concerns on Facebook... 
A big thank you to everyone who has sent us their thoughts and expressed concern about the fires in Australia. We have had a number of people asking how they can help with the fire response and recovery. Information on how you can help is provided below. Thank you all again; our thoughts are with everyone affected by the fires. Advice on travel to Australia is also provided.
