AT least 259 homes have been opened so far since the rehabilitation works for Tropical Cyclone Evan started.

On Friday, 26 more homes were opened in the Western Division.

Commissioner Western Commander Joeli Cawaki said this development reflected government's objective to return the lives of those affected to normalcy.

"We understand that help has come after a long time but this was due to the large number of people affected by TC Evan and the government would like to thank you for your patience," he said.

"Apart from providing new homes, government has provided other forms of assistance through various ministries including agriculture, fisheries, social welfare, women and poverty alleviation programs.

"These have been done to provide people with income-generating projects so that they're able to contribute to their families, society and the nation."
