FIVE families of Navutua Village in the Yasawa Group are today living in newly-built homes, thanks to the government's cyclone rehabilitation program.
However, another three families whose homes were completely destroyed during Tropical Cyclone Evan in 2012 are still living with neighbours or in thatched huts because the building of their homes has not been completed.
Village headman Petero Nadriva said the first shipment of housing materials were received more than a year ago.
"We have not received the second shipment. There are three houses that have yet to be completed," he said.
"Some of the items that were sent included timber, roofing iron and cement blocks.
"These were used to build five homes that were destroyed."
Mr Nadriva said the second shipment was expected last year.
"While we thank government for their assistance in providing us with new homes, we would like to ask if they could please help us finish the ones that have yet to be completed."
Turaga ni Vanua Ratu Peniasi Vu said farms destroyed during the disaster had slowly recovered.
