Aaron Kumana Set for FUND RAISING

Fundraising Launch, Support Kumana's 5 Recommendations.

A fundraising to support Kumana’s 5 Recommendations

http://aronkumana.blogspot.com/2010/05/aaron-kumanas-5-recommendations.html was launched after Kumana signed a first appreciation certificate to a sponsor from the US. The

certificate known as “Common Face” will be given to individual sponsors who like to help support the 5 Recommendations.

“ISATUNA ISUMATANA” translated in Kumana’ own language –
“Common Face” which gave himself to identify the face of himself and the president JF Kennedy which appeared in magazines, posters, TV or movie without confusing him. That’s why the common face is adopted for the certificate.

After his death (4 year ago) family members formed a committee to carry out his 5R’s. This committee did not work as all these committee members were scatted around the country.

This year 2017 Kumana’s grandson came to rescue again to
support his grandfather’s 5R’s .

With the small amount money donated from the friends oversea we started a Aaron Kumana (AK) rest house and a piggery project. This process may help us support the AK 5R’s.

HELP US TO RESCUER THE 5 Recommendations (5R's).

For more information's and wish to support the 5R's.

Over viewing A'aron Kumana

Aaron Kumana and Biuku Gaza were two Islanders who rescued John F Kennedy and his crew mates during World War II. Request from White House, Washington was made for this 2 rescuer and immediately preparation was made by our provincial Government. The rescuers were lead to Munda Terminal and were sent out from the steps of the air craft. Changes come in immediately because of their lacking in speaking English. However, Kumana and Biuku were frequently visited by tourists and students from overseas.

Last following year, 2006, Biuku was pronounced death by his bedside and leaving only Aaron Kumana who was frequently visited.
Before the Ethnic Tension here in our country, Aaron and his grand Son Aaron Malakana, erected an eco-Resort, known us JF Kennedy resort, this is to accommodate visitors from over seas. However, during the Tension, the project came to a stop and during the 8.1 Earthquake/Tsunami the project collapsed living nothing to continue. The project had been ignored and many visitors promised him for help and due to lacking communication, these promises were ignored.

A group of Geographic team from USA arrived in 2003 with Senator Robert Kennedy’s son (President Kennedy’s nephew) purposely to explore the wreckage of the PT109 Patrol Boat and to take a visit to these 2 rescuers. Promises been made and both rescuers were communicate through Danny Kennedy. They were privilege to erect their living house which is finance by either Geographic team or Kennedy Family. Especially for Aaron’s family, this year received 30horse powered engine from somebody.

Now as we managed to have our own site, we will communicate direct to our visitors who wish to help or visit our granny, Aaron Kumana.

Aaron Kumana was I elder in the big community, tribe and the church. He was well respected by the community people. Not only that, but was identified as the source of improving the community. These beliefs come about during his requests from visitors and the promises he made for helping his community.
He cannot give up but try to fulfill these promises if there is positively from his USA friends. He built his house donated by his friends but he cannot complete this because he has the strong believe of associating himself with the standard the community have.

More than 150 visitors from all over the world especially the Americans visit him till this year 2009, as usual he asked for the support from the visitors to help his community. He continues to seek support as to fulfill his promises. However, his eldest daughter Violet Kaurae began a kindergarten for his 50 grand children. The idea was brought up because that is the first priority since 90’s.
