The Government of Japan has provided FJ$195,912 assistance to the Nasinu Town Council through its grant assistance for grassroots human security projects programme yesterday.
The Charge de Affairs of the Embassy of Japan, Kinzo Nakagun, said the funding would be used to buy a garbage compactor truck and to build a garage.
“We are delighted to provide assistance to NTC’s efforts towards fulfilling its vision of a cleaner environment for its residents and business,” Mr Nakagun said.
He said with the new garbage compactor truck, the workers would not have to lift and throw heavy garbage loads over their heads, minimising spillage that could cause skin diseases and other illnesses.
“Loading will be faster and more convenient, with less exertion required from the workers resulting in fewer injuries.”
Mr Nakagun said they hoped that the improvement in the sanitary services in Nasinu Town would empower its people and build resilience to adversities brought about by health and environment- related threats.
The town’s special administrator, Mosese Kama, said improving sanitary environment in Nasinu municipality was an ongoing challenge and they were thankful to the Japanese Government.
Considering Nasinu was the biggest municipality in the country in terms of land area, population and number of households compared to Suva and Lautoka, Mr Kama said their resources were less and receiving this donation was wonderful.
