MORE than 3,000 people of Hozafaga ward four council in Henganofi district, Eastern Highlands are lucky recipients of almost K2.5 million worth of equipment and support from their local MP Ferao Orimyo.
Last week, Orimyo distributed cheques to churches, schools and made payments for land where the district’s new television transmission signal is located.
Orimyo distributed 94 coffee pulpers, a walkabout sawmill, 48 knapsack sprayers, K66,000 for rural electrification projects, K20,000 for water supply, K48,000 worth of minimum supply kit for electricity connections into homes.
“I call on the people of Hozafaga to utilise these equipment to improve your standard of living, you will use the sawmill to mill timbers, build houses, connect electricity and have water supply.”
He urged the people to utilise them to reap maximum benefits.
He would continue to assist parents with partial school fees support.
Some of the schools that received financial assistance were Avani Primary School (K20,000), Tinterina Community School (K10,000), Hozafaga Community School (K10,000), Keke and Avave Elementary schools (K6,000 each).
Six Christian churches in the area each received K2,000 under the district services improvement programme (DSIP).
He already visited a number of the wards in the three local level government areas of Henganofi, Fayantina and Dunantina and would travel to the remaining wards.
Youth spokesman Paul Jim took the occasion to challenge local public servants to perform and deliver basic services.
