North Fly relief supplies airlifted today

Temporary relief supplies are being airlifted today to areas affected by the earthquake last week in the North Fly district of Western Province.

The relief supplies were coordinated by North Fly MP, James Donald.

Bags of 10kg rice, cartons of biscuits, water bottles and noodles valued at K25,000 will be delivered to the district today.

The items are being airlifted from Kiunga to the remote Mogulu station, where a team will coordinate the delivery to those affected areas.

On Monday Ok Tedi Mining Ltd responded positively to the MP’s request for a helicopter hire into the affected areas.

Mogulu is located near the border of Hela and Southern Highlands provinces.

More update today.
