State of Natural Disaster to remain
February 28, 2016 1:28 am
Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama says they expect to achieve as much as they can during the ‘State of Natural Disaster’ declaration period.
Bainimarama says their priority remains…. to provide basic necessities and restore essential services within these thirty-days and then they will decide on the next step from there on.
Nothing changes, tarpaulins over their heads – at least they have got this place – this school as an evacuation center. Something I am very grateful about is they always endorse the fact that the kids need to go back to school, so they will go back and have a look at where they are staying – if there are some halls and churches they can use as evacuation center and get this place cleaned up so that the kids can utilize the schools again.
Government officials with the help of international agencies and non-governmental organisations continue providing food rations and other items.
The Prime Minister has left for Koro Island today, one of the worst hit maritime zones by Tropical Cyclone Winston.
