Village councillor Clifford Gaileko said since El Niño hit the province about four months ago, there had not been one single authority or elected leader that had come down to assess the situation and help.
“Votes from the grassroots people bring politicians into power and into government. They must remember us and help us.
“The situation is so bad, we have no food, we have no water and we really need help,” said Gaileko.
Porotona is in the Maramatana LLG in Planning Minister Charles Abel's Alotau electorate.
