A family who lost their house to a landslide on Sunday morning at Sasawira settlement, Davuilevu, now have a new plot of land to rebuild their future.

Baram Sen and his family thanked Minister for Local Government, Housing and Environment Praveen Bala Kumar for sorting out their land issues yesterday.

“We feel fortunate that the minister came to our place and gave us a piece of land to rebuild our house,” Mr Sen said.

“We have lost everything because we did not have a proper piece of land to build our house.

“Now because of the Government of the day, we have a piece of land for ourselves where we can start building our new home.”

It will definitely be a Christmas to remember for the Sen family.

“What more can a family ask for on Christmas,” the father of four said.

Mr Bala was in the settlement to inspect and view the possible vacant spots for the family to rebuild their home.

“It was unfortunate that the family lost basically everything in the landslide; luckily no one was injured,” he said.

“I am here to basically to meet the family and to see how we can assist them and we have located a plot for them to rebuild.”

This was done in consultation with the family. After viewing a few areas, one area of was chosen for the family.

“Now they have a flat piece of land to rebuild their house and be rest assured that nothing like this would happen again,” Mr Bala said.

He said further assistance would be provided if the family was in need.

“I have seen to it that the family has most of the building materials but I think they would need further assistance,” Mr Bala said.

“I urge some corporate companies and non-governmental organisations to assist the family.”
