K2m released to help Kandep frost victims

The Kandep Development Authority has released K2 million to assist thousands of victims affected by the frost.

This follows a devastating effect by the frost affecting over 72 thousand people.

Kandep MP and Opposition Leader Don Pomb Polye held an urgent District Development Authority meeting over the weekend and released the funds which will go towards helping the affected people.

Mr Poly during the meeting instructed officers from the district to immediately make food supplies available to the affected people.

The funds released will be used to buy mainly rice, flour and cooking oil among other store goods to be distributed to the affected people.

The Kandep District Development Authority under the leadership of Mr Polye then endorsed the formation of a Frost Relief Committee which will raise funds to assist the affected people.

The newly formed relief committee headed by a priest will have a bank account where donor agencies and those willing to assist will deposit straight into the account.

Mr Poly, who visited the affected district over the weekend, expressed concern at the plight of the people.

He urged the national government to immediately dispatch its officers to conduct a study on the extent of the damage so it can provide assistance.
