West Coast Santo families hit by TC Harold need proper shelter assistance

Around 500 households that lost their homes to TC Harold nearly two months ago have not receive any shelter assistance, according to a report.

According to a report by Climate Change Scientist, Dr Christopher Bartlett, there’s not a single tarpaulin mobilised for these households.  

The majority of homes there are built using local materials such as ‘natangura’, bamboo and ropes. Families cannot start rebuilding homes since the natangura palms used for roof thatching have been completely destroyed.
