Three families are still sheltering at the Nadogo Central College evacuation centre.

The rest of the families who were sheltering there have returned to their homes after they were repaired.

Four-month-old Camari Naikere, who captured the attention of Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama last week, are still sheltering at the evacuation centre, but the family hopes to return home today.

There are 107 active evacuation centres in the Northern Division and four in the Eastern.

Baby Camari’s father, Serupepeli Batinamu, said early in the morning he would work on his farm. Later, he would help other members in the community rebuild damaged homes.

Mr Batinamu and his family have been living at the evacuation centre since the eve of Cyclone Yasa.

“My wife goes home everyday day to cook meals and immediately return to look after the baby,” he said.

“I am thankful to Government for assuring that they are here to assist affected families in these trying times.

“There are nine members in my family and I would be moving back to my house today and spend the New Year there.”

Salote Senirewa said they were lucky to have evacuated their families to safety.

“The Prime minister has visited us and encouraged us not to lose hope because they are ready to assist us,” she said

“Our house is already repaired and everything is cleared. I have two kids and they just want to go home.”

Ms Senirewa said they had received assistance from various faith-based groups, government, FMF and Punjas.
