Around 22,083 homes have been assisted under the Help for Homes initiative says Attorney-General, Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum.

He revealed this while responding to a question posed by Government MP, Viam Pillay in Parliament yesterday.

“It has assisted a total of 22, 083 homes and the areas that have been covered included people who were claiming under this initiative,” Mr Sayed-Khaiyum said.

He said these were people who had been affected from Vanuabalavu, the Lomaiviti group, Taveuni, Savusavu, Bua, Tailevu, Ra, Tavua, Ba and Lautoka.”

Mr Sayed-Khaiyum also said there had been discussions with insurance companies on providing insurance for rural and low cost housing.

He said the insurance companies themselves need to be able to provide a particular level of coverage.

“It may not be a full blown coverage but if certain basic requirements are met.

“So if insurance companies were able to offer say, $3000 or $5000 covers for these homes if they met the basic requirements for roof damage, than in the future they would be covered for a nominal premium,” Mr Sayed-Khaiyum said.

He had also advised people that there were rigorous measures that Government was undergoing to verify claims lodged with them.
