United Nations Disaster Assessment and Coordination team to Solomons tsunami leaves
The UNDAC team was sent by the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Assistance to help Solomon Islands in coordinating different activities following the earthquake and tsunami disasters in the Western and Choiseul provinces.
In a brief farewell for the team Wednesday afternoon at the National Disaster Management Office, NDMO Director Loti Yates said without the team's support the work of coordinating and collating information about relief supplies and logistics would not have been cohesive.
Yates said NDC appreciated so much their support and contributions and assured them the knowledge they imparted to the various local people who are still working now will go a long way into the future.
In response, team leader Joanne Laurens said her team had been very impressed with the way the operations had been well handled.
