The biggest suburb in Port Vila, Freshwater, plans to mobilize its residents for help towards families who have been severely affected last month by earthquakes and volcano activities on Ambrym Island.
There are around 3 000 people living in the area covering Freshwater One, Freshwater Two, Freshwater Three, Freshwater Four, Freshwater Five and Freshwater Six. It is one of the well-organized communities in Port Vila with Chiefs Area Council, Youth, Women, and Church councils.
In a community announcement release on Monday, chiefs wanted to organize a meeting yesterday at the Freshwater Field at 5.00 pm but due to bad weather, the meeting was postponed to another time.
The purpose of that meeting is to discuss how Freshwater Community would step forward and what kind of help it can provide to those who are affected by the natural disasters of Ambrym.
The two main chiefs behind the initiative, Sawia Kalanga and Samson Johnson, are appealing to people living with them, including church leaders, youth leaders, women leaders, political leaders and municipal councilors to be present at the meeting they plan to organize either today or later this week.
