From , 5:02 am on 18 December 2018

Christmas may have come a little early for 2000 plus families displaced by volcanic eruptions on Vanuatu's Ambae Island.

Oxfam's Sandra Uwantege one-teg-eh Hart says their new aid programme aims to kick-start the lives of families who relocated to Santo and were not eligible for official government help.

The Cash Transfer Programme provides financial assistance to evacuee and host families.

Ms Uwantege Hart told Dominic Godfrey, the first of three monthly installments was paid over the last week.
