“The details of the assistance will be confirmed over the next few days and the Fund
would work closely with Government on this matter,” Mr Koroi said
“Whilst the Fund encourages its members to save for retirement, it has a social
responsibility in ensuring that its members’ social needs are met especially in times
of natural disasters,” he said.
The Fund also extends its sympathies and condolences to all those who have
suffered from the flood.
A detailed media statement on this matter will be issued in the next few days
