10 farmers from Labasa have each received a 5,300 litres water tank from the Adventist Development and Relief Agency.
Adventist Development and Relief Agency Fiji Country Director Iliapi Tuwai says the assistance was part of a project targeted at helping communities address water problems.
He has reassured the farmers that they will continue to work with Government to help the farmers.
63 year old Akisi Vinaka says she was grateful for the assistance as it would greatly help her with the water problems usually experienced in the area she lives in.
She says the water problems were creating difficulties for her sheep and piggery farm hence the water tank was a welcome relief.
Minister for Agriculture, Waterways and Environment Dr Mahendra Reddy thanked the organization and other development partners for assisting farmers in improving their livelihoods.
The assistance is worth over $10,000.
