$22m for housing rehab program

Salaseini Moceiwai
Saturday, April 05, 2014

ABOUT $23million is being used by the government to rehabilitate houses damaged or destroyed by cyclones Thomas and Evan.

Rural and Maritime Development and National Disaster Management Minister Lt-Col Inia Seruiratu made the revelation during a talanoa session at the government roadshow in Nadogo this week.

He said such works were continuing as the government worked on its aim of providing better and well-facilitated homes for affected families.

However, Lt-Col Seruiratu has urged people to request the government's housing plan before building their houses.

He said many usually approached government officials for housing assistance when they were stuck building their houses.

Lt-Col Seruiratu said poor housing plans resulted in damage during natural disasters.
