MEMBERS of the Melanesian Brotherhood Fox household in Makira have received a brand new one ton-truck from Central Makira Constituency.

Constituency Development Officer (CDO), Gravis Tahiri handed over the key to the vehicle to Assistant Head Brother at the Chester Rest-house, Wednesday.

The vehicle will be shipped to Makira later.

 “This is part of the constituency’s continuous support to the churches in the Constituency of Central Makira,” Tahiri said after the handing over of the vehicle.

“Observing the brothers usually walking long distances to carry out their mission and ministry not only in our constituency but in other areas, had us decide that the vehicle would be one of their urgent needs,” the CDO said.

Rev Erick Tano, tutor at Fox Household in the Diocese of Hanuato’o (DOH), who joined the brothers to receive the vehicle said, “the vehicle is truly one of our needs in Makira”.

“Many thanks to Central Makira Constituency for identifying one of our needs.

“We are so thankful because the vehicle will surely help us to travel around Makira to carry out our Mission and Ministry,” Erick said.

The vehicle will be shipped to Fox Household in the Diocese of Hanuato’o at a later date.
