OIL Search has assisted the United Nations world food programme to deliver more than 30 tonnes of relief supplies to villages affected by the February earthquake.
The company said in a statement it had provided logistical support through the use of its helicopters, its storage area at the company’s base in Moro, Southern Highlands, and officers to assist with the delivery of the supplies to the most affected areas.
Following a visit and pledge to the earthquake affected villagers, the world food programme provided food supplies such as rice and high-energy biscuits and delivered them to the people at the care centres.
Oil Search said its team started the delivery of supplies on Friday and Saturday covering six care centre villages in Southern Highlands, Hela and Western.
It also provided four helicopters to sling the supplies from Moro to Huiya, Yalanda, Kekero, Dodomona, Walagu and Adumari villages, with each helicopter making more than 10 flights during the two days.
The World Food Programme will distribute food over a four-month period.
