PNG: Picking up the pieces six months on from earthquake

From Checkpoint, 5:51 pm on 20 August 2018

Nearly six months on from a major earthquake in Papua New Guinea's Highlands region, affected communities remain in desperate need of help. February's magnitude 7.5 quake in Hela province killed at least 180 people and caused widespread damage in a region which has also recently been mired in violent unrest. RNZ Pacific's Johnny Blades and Koroi Hawkins travelled to the remote Highlands region and filed this report.
