Alliance helps the needy

Salaseini Moceiwai

THE Northern Charity Alliance has stepped in to help victims of Tropical Cyclone Evan in the outer islands with their water supply.

Alliance secretary Ramesh Chand said they had set aside eight water tanks for the islanders.

"The tanks have a capacity of 10,000 litres each and can cater for a large group of people in terms of storing safe drinking water," Mr Chand said.

"We understand that the water supply in most of the outer islands were affected and it was only proper for us to extend a helping hand in the form of donating the tanks to them. The tanks cost about $25,000."

Mr Chand said the gesture was the third phase of their cyclone relief effort.

"The first phase was the distribution of food relief supplies and the second one was providing educational assistance for students in the form of school packs," he said.

"We are happy to be assisting the less fortunate in society and we work towards fulfilling our vision of providing education for the needy, eradicate poverty, promote health and sanitation, and assist the poorest of the poor with housing."
