Villagers in the coast of Wainigadru in the province of Cakaudrove thanked Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama for his government's reforms and for his own commitment to empowering the lives of ordinary Fijians.

The Prime Minister met with villagers yesterday after assessing rehabilitation works undertaken in the village following the destruction of most homes during Hurricane Evan. Soldiers from the Republic of Fiji Military Forces were deployed to the village to assist in the rehabilitation process including the construction of homes.

Wainigadru Village headman, Turaga Ni Koro Fasioko Bonefasiodreti commended the Prime Minister for the work undertaken by the RFMF to restore normalcy in their lives.

Yesterday's visit to this isolated village follows the Prime Minister's recent visit to Lovonidalo settlement in the Bua province this week. There, the head of government met with families who were severely affected, including those whose homes were completely destroyed.

The Prime Minister is continuing his tour of the Northern Division and is now in Rabi.
