Villagers build evacuation centre

Salaseini Moceiwai
Saturday, August 30, 2014

VILLAGERS of Baleyaganiga in Cakaudrove have started building an emergency evacuation centre as part of efforts to have their village registered with the provincial council office.

They have been raising funds for about five years and as of last week, $10,000 had been collected for the project.

Project committee chairman Jekope Matanamatua said one of the criteria for registration was to build the facility.

He said they were looking forward to have their village registered.

Roko Tui Cakaudrove Sara Bulutani said the issue was brought up in previous district meetings.

He said they were aware of the villagers' request which was now being reviewed.

Mr Bulutani said certain criteria had to be met to register a particular village and building an evacuation centre was one of them.
