Help to finish hall

IT was a time of great pride for the people of Naboutini Village in Saqani last week after they were assisted to help them complete the construction of a new community hall.

With the help of English company Madventurer, the hall construction was sped up and the villagers considered themselves "blessed" for the assistance.

"My company works with communities around the world that need assistance in the area of health and education," explained company owner John Lawler, who said the company had been working with Naboutini since 2011.

"In 2009, I came around with some friends for a sports event and I heard about Naboutini Village and their need for help so we stepped in continuing to work with them."

He said the villagers continued to play a major role in the construction of the hall, contributing timber from their forests.

"The rest was funded by the company and we will complete it this week before we return.

"We have spent a substantial amount of money on the hall and we really don't mind because we want the villagers to have a good hall."
