Minister for Women, Children and Poverty Alleviation Rosy Akbar says they are in the process of organizing a temporary shelter for 45 year old Anita Singh who lost her home in a fire and is currently living in a wrecked mini bus in Wainibuku, Nausori.
Akbar says the Ministry does not have housing assistance but they have $1000 immediate relief assistance for fire victims which is being organized for Singh.
Singh lost her home in Nakasi last week and has been taking shelter in a junk vehicle which belongs to the owner of Turtle Tyre Services.
She says she used to work in a garment factory before but has been unemployed for more than a year now and survives on social welfare.
Turtle Tyre Services owner Krishna Dutt has told us that he has been providing her with meals and access to other necessary facilities.
Dutt says Singh is in urgent need of clothes because most of her belongings were destroyed in the fire.
You can call Anita Singh on her mobile 2315319 if you want to assist her.
You can also donate funds to her BSP account 84060472.
