Wednesday, April 23, 2014

THE registration of villagers in the Vola Ni Kawa Bula was among issues highlighted to the Bua Provincial Council officials during their visit to villages in the province.

Senior assistant roko Jone Drugunalevu said the visits were to profile all the villagers and conduct a vulnerability needs assessment.

"Some other issues brought to our attention were the revival of the crime prevention committees in the various districts and villages and also the effects of climate change," Mr Drugunalevu said.

"Apart from the issues, we also conducted assessments, we assessed the needs of the vulnerable ones in society.

"With this assessment, we are able to identify the situation of the villagers on the ground and those that need urgent assistance."

Mr Drugunalevu said the visit was also a groundwork exercise because it helped them identify the villagers' living conditions.
