EXXONMOBIL PNG ASSISTS NORTH FLY DISTRICT DISASTER COMMITTEE TO DISTRIBUTE FOOD RATIONS

"Forty cartons of tinned fish and nearly 400 x 10 kilogram bags of rice were flown to airstrips for delivery"

Earthquake and drought impacted communities in Western Province received a helping hand recently with food rations from the Western Provincial Administration, North Fly District Office and Disaster Committee of Western Province delivered in partnership with ExxonMobil PNG.

North Fly District Disaster Coordinator, Max Maina thanked ExxonMobil PNG for chartering the flight which enabled their organisations to deliver the food to people in need.

Forty cartons of tinned fish and nearly 400 x 10 kilogram bags of rice were flown to airstrips for delivery to Olsobip, Golgobip, Biangabip and Bolibip villages by the local level government officials on the ground.

The ongoing impact from the earthquake earlier this year and the recent drought continues to affect food and water in a number of areas in the province.

Mr Maina said under the earthquake restoration, there were a number of supplies that they had to distribute and they appreciated that ExxonMobil PNG had come to their assistance to fly the food into the province.
