We are a Christ centred service (health, education, community development) provider in a remote area of Papua New Guinea.
GCS is looking for volunteers to join the team at Kapuna . We have a project planned to rebuild the hospital and need help to achieve this.
Our most pressing need is for experienced qualified builders and tradespeople, with preference for those who are able to help long term and share our Christian vision. We need builders both to work within existing teams and to lead new teams under the direction of the site manager.
We have a current need for a Finance Manager. We would prefer a local person, but would consider international applications from those able to commit long term, more than 1 year.
If you are a doctor/medical worker, or work in administration we may also be interested in having you come over.
We have many accommodation options available. We have houses available for volunteers with families to stay in, houses and dormitories for singles to stay in all free of charge.
We can provide meals for short term volunteers by negotiation. Our usual arrangement is an allowance for long term volunteers to spend on food. Food can be bought at the local store and market.
We offer a fortnightly allowance for long term volunteers only that covers food and other expenses while at Kapuna. The amount varies from volunteer to volunteer depending on the situation. This is not available to short term volunteers or visitors.
We ask a small fee for internet usage.
We help with acquiring a Papua New Guinean Visa for your stay. If you are volunteering to fill an existing required position eg as a doctor we may be able to assist with international airfares. We organise internal flights in Papua New Guinea from Port Moresby to Kapuna for all volunteers and organise dingy pick up on arrival in the Gulf. We have an orientation guide we give to all volunteers and we help volunteers get settled into life at Kapuna. We have social activities such as sports days, beach trips, church activities and many more.

Gulf Christian Services (GCS) is an organisation which operates in the Gulf Province of Papua New Guinea. We run two hospitals, a Community Health Worker (CHW) Training School, Church, Primary School and Community Development Projects. Our vision is to provide Christ centred services in the Gulf region. Kapuna Hospital, where GCS is based, is in a remote area and is only accessible by boat. Kapuna hospital serves 35000 people in the surrounding area and is the only health facility for these people. Kikori hospital is located in the township of Kikori and serves 40000 in the surrounding area.
GCS meets both the physical and spiritual needs of the surrounding people and is the only hope for many in the region.
