“COMMUNITIES within the Weathercoast region of San Christobel Island in Makira Ulawa province that are badly affected by the cyclone Harold a few months ago are still waiting for the government to send them the relief suppliers promised.
“Chief Hudson Haotai from Marou village in the Haununu district told the paper on Wednesday there were two cyclones that directly hit them this year.
“Mr. Haotai said the first one hit them just after the New Year before cyclone Harold in April.
“He said since the disaster until today, many of them especially those living along the weather coast of the island are facing difficulties in terms of food.
“Most of us, we rely on bananas as our staple food but after the cyclone Harold, all of our food gardens especially the bananas were all swept away and now our people found it very hard to find food,” he said.”
