Susan Hareho Karike (now Mrs Huhume) is on life support at the Ward 7/Intensive Care Unit.
Her eldest son, Philip Huhume, is concerned that his mother has been overlooked for almost 30 years.
“Will the government recognise her while she’s still alive?”
He told Loop PNG that people know the flag but have no idea of the woman behind it.
“Bikpla samting mi laikim em i mas gat luksave lo mama.” (Most important thing I want is recognition for mother.)
Philip has also asked for the country to support his mother in prayer.
