GOVERNMENT will build an evacuation centre for the relocated villagers of Vunidogoloa in Cakaudrove.
Director National Disaster Management Office Manasa Tagicakibau visited the village last week to inform villagers about the new centre.
He told the villagers that it was important for them to find a suitable yet safe location to build the centre on.
Mr Tagicakibau said choosing the site was important to ensure that the new building was not easily affected by natural disasters especially floods.
He said the centre should be built by August thus the importance of identifying a safe and suitable spot for the building.
The villagers were also informed about government's assistance to them following the relocation.
Village headman Sailosi Ramatu said villagers had settled in well and the provision of better homes made their stay easier.
"Government built 30 new houses and provided solar lights as well and we are very grateful. We have asked previous governments but this one heard our plea and we are glad that we no longer use kerosene for our lamps," he said.
"The solar lights are more than enough and even when we are here in the new village, government continues to support us.
"Our children study better and can actually have some rest in the evening before doing their homework because they can use the lights throughout the night."
