Families who were badly-affected by Cyclone Evan in the Northern Division breathed a sigh of relief after the first shipment of relief supplies arrived in Labasa last Saturday.
This was confirmed by provincial administrator Macuata Josefa Rokonai yesterday.
Mr Rokonai said the relief assistance, which was shipped from Suva on Friday evening, consisted of water tanks, food rations and clothes.
The consignment was offloaded at the Old Government Supplies warehouse in Vatunibali where Army and Police personnel would be helping out in packaging the relief supplies.
“Right now Military and Police personnel have completed the packing of food rations,” he said.
Disaster Management Office (DISMAC) officials and Military personnel will be distributing the relief  supplies to villages that were badly affected by Cyclone Evan.
“Tommorow the first distribution will be going out to villages in Kia and Druadrua islands and later to the Bua province,” Mr Rokonai said.
Mr Rokonai also stated that the food rations that were donated by the Northern Charity Alliance last week will also be circulated to the rest of the affected villages in the Northern Division.
