About Papua New Guinea

Papua New Guinea is made up of the Eastern half of the island of New Guinea as well as various surrounding islands. It is home to 886 People Groups. The majority of Papua New Guineans are nominally Christian but many still live under the shadow of earlier tribal belief systems. The Muslim world is also sending missionaries to Papua New Guinea.

Christian Aid supports efforts to translate the Bible into the language of every tribe in Papua New Guinea as well as supporting indigenous ministers who work among their own People Group.
