Papua New Guinea $1 million extra
by Melbourne Herald Sun
An airlift of relief supplies into Oro province by RAAF planes and helicopters is winding down after a two-week effort in the stricken region.
Bob McMullan, Australia's parliamentary secretary for international development assistance, announced extra cash yesterday on top of $1 million in humanitarian assistance already released through AusAID.
Heavy rain associated with tropical cyclone Guba in the Coral Sea earlier last month caused widespread flooding in Oro province, killing about 170 people.
