3-month food cover

ABOUT 100 packs of food relief supplies have been given to villages in Seaqaqa that were badly affected by Tropical Cyclone Evan.

Commissioner Northern Lieutenant-Colonel Ilai Moceica said villagers whose crops were badly damaged during TC Evan had received relief supplies.

"Our team continue their assessment on the ground and only those who are badly affected will be assisted," said Lt-Col Moceica.

"We will continue to assist people with food rations from January to March next year during which people are expected to be able to produce their own food.

"Due to the degree of damage to food crops in areas in the north we have projected that people will be needing food rations for three months."

Lt-Col Moceica said his team would be actively participating in rebuilding damaged homes and ensuring that relief was diverted to those who needed them urgently.

He described the situations in the islands of Yadua, Kia and Tavewa as similar to those of the Viet Cong movies after villages were ravaged by insurgents.

"I am reaching out and rebuilding homes in these islands and I will need all of your support in doing this," Lt-Col Moceica said.
