SHP relief supplies in Mt Hagen

Relief supplies intended for people affected by the earthquake in Southern Highlands Province are now sitting in Mt Hagen, waiting for the situation in Mendi Town to get back to normal.

This newsroom was reliably informed that over 2,000 items, including water tanks and food such as tinned fish and noodles, are in Mt Hagen ready to be transported to Mendi Town.

These items are part of the government’s relief efforts after declaring a State Of Emergency following the earthquake in February this year.

Food supplies were necessary after the earthquake destroyed most of the food gardens that the affected people depended heavily on.
