The Fiji Corrections Service (FCS) officers wasted no time as they kick started their clean-up campaign in all the schools in Tailevu yesterday.

Staff officer administration Rusiate Batiratu said they were there to help the people.

“When we arrived on Wednesday we felt sad after seeing the damage and destruction the cyclone did so we’re here to help them get back on their feet. So for the time being we’re concentrating on the schools.

“We’re not just here to clean up, but to build their morale they have gone through a lot and we’re here to help them rebuild their lives. We are also conducting our awareness programmes.

“We’re also advising them to save money in the future in case something like this happens they have money to stabilise them.

“We’re here to help as requested by the Government. We don’t know how long we will be here but we’re ready to help the people,” Mr Batiratu said.

FCS set out three units based in Burewai in Ra, Navunisea District School in Silana Village and Dawasamu Primary School in Tailevu.

“We’re here just to clean up all the debris, remove damaged desks, chairs, windows and books destroyed during the cyclone and the RFMF will start off with the repairing of the schools,” he said.

A total of 24 officers located in Silana village, 21 male officers and three female officers. Edited by Maraia Vula
