An emergency convoy is delivering provisions to survivors of a landslide in Papua New Guinea. The landslide, which occurred in Enga province, has reportedly buried scores of people and destroyed 60 houses. The chief of the International Organization for Migration’s mission in Papua New Guinea said that the death toll could be higher than the reported 100 casualties. Only three bodies have been recovered so far. The landslide also destroyed the village’s food gardens and drinking water sources. Relief efforts are underway, with a focus on providing food, water, shelters, and blankets to the most vulnerable.
