26 families from Batiri Village in Dreketi, Macuata are now sheltering at the Ahmadiyya Muslim College in Voloca.

The families moved in yesterday evening after they were advised to do so by DISMAC teams.

Batiri Villager Aratea Tinaisili says they live close to the river and were told to move to the school as the water level might rise.
