PM's wife to accompany women delegation to the western Solomons to deliver disaster relief supplies

A delegation of women is to travel to the earthquake and tsunami hit areas of Solomon Islands to deliver disaster relief supplies targetted towards women and children.

The group, which includes the wife of the prime minister, Amy Sogavare, will leave Honiara this weekend with supplies for Choiseul and Western provinces.

They will take with them clothes, household goods and kitchen utensils.

The group, which also includes wives of cabinet ministers, and women in senior government posts and NGOs, will be flown to the provinces on board a Papua New Guinea defence force plane.

They will first visit Taro, Vosa and Sasamunga, the three worst hit places on Choiseul, before travelling to Gizo and its outlying villages, then on to Simbo and the Vella Lavella islands.
