Locals in Ha’apai appealing for better way to store their packages from Tongatapu

Radio & TV Tonga, Nuku’alofa, 09/11/2017

 

The people of Ha’apai are appealing to the Friendly Island Shipping Agency – FISA for better and secured way to store their packages and goods when they’re shipping from Tongatapu to the island.

 

The District Officer of Lulunga – Kisione Taulani Fatai says, when it rains their packages are stored at an open container and their goods are damaged because the storage area is not safe.

 

Most of the goods destroyed are flour and food items for the local shops.

 

Radio Tonga contacted FISA for a comment regarding the issue but a spokesperson said, the vessel will arrive tomorrow morning and they will enquire the situation.

 

Meantime the people of Ha’afeva are preparing for their village inspection as part of the initiative to keep the environment clean, green and healthy.
