THE Member of Parliament for Ulawa/Ugi Constituency, Honorable William Marau has been praised for facilitating much needed infrastructure for Ulawa/Ugi.
Through assistance by the Ministry of Infrastructure and Development (MID) and through the Rural Constituency Development Fund (RCDF), Marau was able to deliver the projects to his Constituency of Ulawa/Ugi.
Marau has been providing a number of projects for his Constituency with one of them being the delivery of LC Lokoiola that was launched earlier this week. Also a market house and two warehouses in Ulawa and Ugi including the purchase of vehicles for land transport for the two islands.
Speaking on behalf of the people of Ulawa and Ugi, Toswel Tahisau in relation to the market house said, it will provide shelter for them during bad weather.
Tahisau said women will now be able to sell their products in a conducive environment.
He said beneficiaries of these facilities must work together to care and make good use of these facilities.
Tahisau said the people of Ulawa and Ugi are also thankful for the standard warehouse both in Ulawa and Ugi.
“These storage buildings have now served their purpose in which people are benefiting from now,” he said.
Betrina Roraimae of Ulawa Ugi Council of Women says they applaud Hon Marau and the Constituency Management for fulfilling one of their (women) key priority needs which is the market house.
Roraimae said this is a great achievement especially for women and children of the two islands.
Few other projects are still progressing like Hydro power lighting system and the housing schemes. Some will start next early next year.
