"The De La Salle brothers touched the hearts of millions of children all over the world", said Archbishop Kurian Mathew Vayalunkal, Apostolic Nuncio of Papua New Guinea and Solomon Islands. "Brothers of different nationalities have offered their time and continue to use their energies for the education of hundreds of thousands of young people in Papua New Guinea".
