West Kwaio, Malaita Province is the latest region to be hard-hit by the effects of the El-Nino.
West Kwaio elder Mr. David Gosia confirms, their water source and food crops are badly affected.
“We are finding it difficult as our gardens are not growing and producing food as the soil is too dry and now we do not know where to get food for survival.”
Mr. Gosia said he visited the Malaita Provincial Disaster Office recently about his people’s concern, but the office did not respond positively.
He appeals for immediate assistance.
