Civil servants help out

PUBLIC servants around the country have joined hands and hearts to help those who were badly affected by the wrath of Tropical Cyclone Evan.

Different teams are being deployed to assist the National Disaster Management Office (NDMO) in their attempts to restore peoples' homes and lives.

Assistance is being given in the form of damage assessment, relief, recovery and rehabilitation works in the Northern and Western divisions. Much of the damage caused by TC Evan was structural in nature, resulting in the NDMO moving some civil servants to assist in those areas too.

"Teams of civil servants are being deployed to undertake assessments on structural damages to infrastructure and housing, loss to livelihood, and damage to the environment," the Ministry of Information said on Friday. Cabinet announced a state of natural disaster last week which saw numerous government agencies begin work with the Ministry of Provincial Development and National Disaster Management, said Public Service Commission permanent secretary Parmesh Chand.
