The members of the Fiji National Provident Fund will likely receive around $5000 to re-build their homes after the devastating floods.
However FNPF spokesperson Wainikiti Bogidrau says all applications that will be made for assistance will be thoroughly scrutinized.
Bogidrau says the FNPF Board has approved a payment of $1000 per family for flood assistance and those who have lost their homes are eligible for more.
“We are expecting some of our members whose houses may have been totally damaged and others who have damage to their structure to come forward and check your housing eligibility. This is made available to them. They can come forward and apply for housing eligibility to repair, renovate their homes. For our members in the west, all they have to do is to meet the requirements and the funds will be made available to them if they need more than $5000 to meet their needs of rebuilding their homes.”
Teams have already been stationed to various villages in the western division and Bogidrau says for people in Sigatoka, their team will be at Semo, Nalele and Nabau villages.
For those in Nadi – a team will be at Namotomoto and Navoci villages, a team will also be in Lautoka and in Tailevu the team will be at the Nabitu Seventh Day Adventist Church, Nabouva village and Korovou Christian Mission Complex.
