Children homeless

THREE children who lived close to the house that was destroyed by a fire in Nanuku settlement on Monday night are now seeking assistance from the public.

The children were left homeless after the fire spread to their home and destroyed it.

Nanuku Community Watch Council chairman Rajend Udit said the children only had the clothes on their backs and they needed community support.

Mr Udit said the three children did not expect their home to be destroyed by the fire and to lose all their belongings in just one night.

"Two of the children attend primary school and one attends secondary school," Mr Udit said.

"We had to offer them a place to sleep after the incident because they did not have a place to stay until morning."

He said it was hard seeing members of Nanuku community suffer from such incidents.

"We would like to seek assistance from the public in helping the children out with their school materials," he said.

"We would appreciate if organisations, families and the government can assist the children who were affected by the fire."

He said it was going to be hard for the family who suffered to rebuild their lives after the fire and they needed all the support they could get.
