THE Health Ministry's National Filariasis Unit has confirmed that allowances owed to volunteers will be paid this week.

Unit co-ordinator Litia Salusalu said they could not confirm the exact day for payments but volunteers should expect to get paid by Friday.

Ms Salusalu said the unit was still awaiting verification lists from sub-divisional supervisors before they could be processed allowances owed to volunteers.

"We had received some verification lists today (yesterday) and we confirm receiving the verification lists for volunteers from Macuata and Cakaudrove. For those verification lists that we have received, we are working on them and this will take some time since we are talking about a large sum of money here," said Ms Salusalu.

Health acting permanent secretary Doctor Josefa Koroivueta earlier said, "volunteers will be paid according to certain criteria set by the ministry and this includes the registration of workers during the tablet distribution phase and the amount of citizens that volunteers had successfully distributed the tablets to".
