                                          ANOTHER K50,000 TO SUSU MAMAS
   Steamships being the platinum sponsor of Susu Mamas since last year continued its status by donating another
 K50,000.00 this week adding the total to K100,000.00 in two years. The donation was made possible through Steam-
 ships Shipping, Steamships Hardware and Corporate Office.
 Susu Mamas is the only non-governmental organization in PNG dedi-
 cated to reducing high infant mortality rate for more than 30 years in
 the country.
 Children are important part of nation building and Steamships is
 happy to support a worthy cause in helping to educate PNG mothers
 on the health and nutrition of their babies.
 Susu Mamas sponsorships coordinator, Kylie Mead, thanked Steam-
 ships saying: “This donation will go along way in assisting Susu Ma-
 mas’ work and we are very grateful for this wonderful sponsorship
 last year and this year. I

                               PIPI OF HIGHLANDER HOTEL TO REPRESENT PNG
For those of you who have telephoned the Highlander Hotel, you will remember the polite answering of the phone “Welcome, High-
lander Hotel, Pipi speaking.” What you may not know is that Pipi Olho is blind.
Pipi is a very active participant in the community in helping other disabled people and is a founding member and chief instigator in
setting up the Highlands Disability Foundation. In recognition of his community work, Pipi has been chosen to represent PNG at an
international seminar in Dhaka, Bangladesh, for “Persons With Disabilities Initiatives In Development”. Pipi is travelling with James
Aiwa, the second PNG Delegate, who is a lecturer for Special Education at Goroka University.
On Pipi’s return we will hear more as he will write of his adventures in Bangladesh. There will

                                         you’re wondering how Pipi will write, he can use a
                                        typewriter and computer.

                                       Hardware Launches Anti-Flame paint
These days property business or just owning a house can be an expensive exercise yet rewarding. In maintaining
properties, it is imperative, to purchase the right products to keep it in a good condition for a longer period of time.
This week, Steamships Hardware launched a new flame retardant paint, called Anti-Flame. During the week they
held launches in POM, Lae and Madang for all industry personnel including Architects, Engineers, Builders, Busi-
ness Operators and Property Owners to witness the product’s unique qualities first-hand.
The launches attracted a great response and guests were amazed by the demonstrations which compared the
burning rate of 2 model houses, one coated in Anti-Flame paint and the other with an alternative paint. In a matter
of minutes the model houses without the Anti-Flame paint soon burned to ashes, whereas the one coated with Anti-
Flame paint proved resistant to flames.
The Anti-Flame paint prevents fire through a process known as intumescence, whereby the paint foams and bub-
bles under high temperatures to create a protective cushion. This prevents fire from penetrating the coated surface
and flames from spreading.
Steamships Hardware is the exclusive distributor of
Anti-Flame paint in PNG and great things are expected
from the new range.
