Member of Parliament for East Rural St Andrew Damion Crawford says money will be taken from the Constituency Development Fund to assist families who lost their homes in the recent bush fire.

Crawford says several students lost books and school supplies in the fire which raged for more than two weeks.

He says the money will be used to ensure that all the students are back in school with all the necessary study material on or before Wednesday May 20.

The Member of Parliament is asking a representative of the families which have not met with him to make contact with the Constituency Office in Gordon Town.

Meanwhile, Crawford says he's met with affected farmers in the constituency.

He says these meetings will continue into next week.
