TARD's Concern About Power Blackout

The To'abaita Authority for Research and Development, TARD, student volunteer group is concerned that vital supplies of drugs are wasted at the Malu'u Health Centre in North Malaita.

This is due to power blackout caused by disgruntled resource owners.

TARD had been very instrumental in restocking the health centre along with another six health clinics in North Malaita with important medical supplies since 2006up till now.

TARD Project Coordinator Exsley Taloiburi who was responsible for facilitating consignments of donated medical supplies from New Zealand and Australia, says he is concerned that such an action by resource owners has resulted in wastage of useful drugs.

Mr Taloiburi says the action had affected innocent people that seek medical treatment at Malu'u Health Centre."This week TARD is clearing another consignment of medicines that arrived from New Zealand for the Malu'u Health Centre and other clinics in North Malaita.

If the parties do not settle the issue we might skip Malu'u Clinic in our next distribution."Mr Taloiburi calls on the government and others such as the Solomon Islands Electricity Authority and the conflicting tribal clans to urgently resolve the impasse.
