09 July 2020 The Government’s project of building new houses for those families that were affected by Cyclone Gita and Harold are literally running well and smoothly.

In Tongan word, ‘Oku lele ‘i matangi e ngaue’ (The work is run with the wind) as Hon Prime Minister Dr Pohiva Tu’i’onetoa gave away keys of 15 new houses to 15 families who were affected and struggled to survive since cyclone Gita and Harold destroyed their homes.

Even though it took more than 2 years for those families that were affected by cyclone Gita to get inside their new homes, Hon Tu’i’onetoa and this government should be acknowledged of the effort and commitment that they put into the project since taken over the helm in August 2019.

The Minister of Infrastructure Hon Akosita Lavulavu, the DCEO, and the building department of the Ministry were focussing in completed the building project for the poor people of Tonga and today is another 15 new houses available for 15 families to live.

These houses are 14 new houses from the cyclone Gita project and also the first new house completed from cyclone Harold. These families were so excited to receive their house keys and no words can explain their warmth and happiness.
