AN additional 66 transitional shelters for families living in informal settlements in the Western Division will be built by Habitat For Humanity Fiji.

This will be possible through a continuing partnership with the New Zealand Aid Program and Habitat for Humanity.

According to a statement by the NGO, the construction and prefabrication of the additional 66 transitional shelters would be for families needing safe shelter.

Habitat For Humanity Fiji national director Masi Latianara said as part of the organisation's response through the Fiji Shelter Cluster, the 66 constructed transitional shelters would be complemented by a further 60 shelters.

"This will be flat-packed and pre-positioned around the country for immediate response following a natural disaster," he said.

"We are grateful to the New Zealand people through their government for their assistance to Fijian families in need.

"Pre-positioning these shelters will allow families to return to safe shelter immediately after a disaster so the road to recovery both emotionally and financially can begin right away."
