Relief supplies for Manam

The next shipment of relief supplies have left Madang for Manam Island last night.

Madang Governor Peter Yama said so far, the administration is monitoring the situation at Manam closely until the volcano subsides.

Currently the Manam volcano is at stage three.

Yama said business houses in Madang have been very helpful in assisting with relief supplies to the people of Manam.

Yesterday, local company, JV PNG Investment Construction Ltd, presented K24,000 to Governor Yama for the relief supplies.

He will be visiting the island today to get a glimpse of what has transpired.

The Manam volcano erupted again last Saturday with no casualties.

However, houses, gardens and their water was spoilt by the ashes.

The affected villages are Kolang, Dangale, Waia, Baliau and Boda.
