Impact of Cyclone Guba continues

Nearly a year after Tropical Cyclone Guba devastated the Oro Province, most villagers are still unable to cultivate their land and continue to experience hardship, the PNG Post-Courier reports. People were most concerned about when the Government’s restoration plan will be implemented. They said government authorities had failed to visit people still living in care centres and villages devastated by the floods. An Oro Bay councillor from Dombada village, which is now a lagoon, said the people in the area were “thankful to God for surviving on beans”, one of the few surviving edible plants.

The next issue of the PNG Association’s quarterly journal, Una Voce, features a fundraising raffle to raise money for a well managed and carefully targeted rural development project in the Oro Province. Tickets will be on sale until early December. The PNGAA website will also soon have a facility available to enable readers to participate in the event.
