Life has improved for the people living on Kili Island in the Marshall Islands following a state of emergency being called.
Kili was without power and fuel because the previous local government administration bankrupted a trust fund that covered the islands expenses.
The new administration - sworn in December, called the state of emergency to free up money.
They have since sent fuel, food, and got the power station running again.
RNZ Pacific correspondent in the Marshall Islands, Giff Johnson spoke with Caleb Fotheringham.
