Official Opening – The Salvation Army’s Boroko Motel and Apartments
The Salvation Army will open the doors of its new motel and apartment to the public on the 19th of February 2016. The new motel is situated next to its head office in Boroko and is a facility operated by the Salvation Army.
It is situated in a secure compound with units fully self-contained to cater for a gap in the Port Moresby market dominated by the major hotel chains. It is available for anyone to stay at competitive rates, for either a short term booking or for longer stays.
The revenue gained by this venture will add vital funding to support the work of The Salvation Army’s social and spiritual programs in Papua New Guinea.
Part of The Salvation Army’s policy is to look for ways to self generate income to support its programs alongside the already generous funding partnerships between church, private and public sector. The motel is planned to contribute to this goal.
The Salvation Army thanks WEL Builders for the construction of the motel and Tusitala Architects limited, the designers of the motel.
The Salvation Army is a church operating in 127 countries throughout the world. In Papua New Guinea, it has many churches as well as social programs across the country.
This is the Army’s first motel to open and operate in Port Moresby.
Chief Secretary, Lt. Colonel Kelvin Alley says, “The public are welcome to the official opening and viewing of the Motel facilities on Friday 19th February at 3pm, Lahara Street Boroko.”
