Fijian Vessel Brings Hope To Cyclone Victims
MLC Sigavou.

Government vessel MLC Sigavou was due to arrive in Suva last night. The vessel had been supplying food rations to cyclone victims in Tuvalu for past three weeks.

Permanent Secretary for Infrastructure and Transport Francis Kean last week said the MLC Sigavou was at Nui Island. It then sailed on to the islands of Nukefetau, Nanumaga, Nukulaelae, Niulakita and Vaitupu.

The Tuvalu Government had made a request to their Fijian counterpart on the release of the MLC Sigavou to assist in the food ration distribution programme.
