The money has been advanced to enable the social service organisation to urgent supplies needed in the relief efforts.
 
It is the sixth consecutive year ExxonMobil PNG has supported the appeal with the money traditionally being used to assist the Salvation Army to carry out its social services programs in communities in PNG.
 
"The company has also purchased a large quantity of much needed food goods which the Salvation Army will take to Moro from where they will be distributed to affected communities," Exxon said. 
 
ExxonMobil PNG managing director Andrew Barry joined company volunteers in their efforts to prepare goods being given to the Salvation Army and thanked them for their hard work on Tuesday this week in Port Moresby.
 
Volunteers packed rations into individual packs that will provide food for one month for nearly 250 households.     
 
"To ensure our support helps to address the most immediate needs of the affected people, we reached out to the Salvation Army who have considerable expertise in disaster relief and recovery," Barry said.
 
"I want to thank them and all the relief workers who are working as quickly as possible to help the communities in the Highlands."
