Dropping money into the wheel barrow

By Glenda Willie

A total of Vt363,614 was raised during a wheelbarrow campaign on October 7, purposely to be directed to the people of Ambae affected by the volcano disaster.

In addition to the large sum of money collected, the Fresh Wota Indigenous Community Association, which was behind this appeal, also received from generous givers 13x25Kg rice, 3 bales of rice, and 55 repacked cartons and bags of clothing.

The Fresh Wota Indigenous Community Association wishes to acknowledge all residents of Fresh Wota One to Fresh Wota Six for their inputs and positive response towards the appeal.

The Association has specifically made mention of the following groups for their generous support which resulted a successful turnout; Fresh Wota Indigenous Council of Chiefs, Fresh Wota Indigenous Council of Women, Fresh Wota Indigenous Council of Youth, Fresh Wota Indigenous Council of Churches, Shefa Health, National Housing Corporation, private cars owners and bus drivers, Au Bon Marche Fresh Wota One staff, and all wholesale and retail shops operating within Fresh Wota area.

All the items and money collected was presented to the Ambae Humanitarian Community based at Sarambulu Church on that same day.
