The dev­as­ta­tion of Trop­i­cal Cy­clone Win­ston has prompted pas­sen­gers on board the MV Pa­cific Pearl to as­sist with re­lief ef­forts.

Tourists on board the cruise liner col­lected school sta­tionery and handed it to the Save the Chil­dren Fiji at Port De­na­rau Ma­rina on Satur­day.

MV Pa­cific Pearl ad­min­is­tra­tion di­rec­tor Jac­que­line Schampier, while hand­ing over the sta­tionery to a rep­re­sen­ta­tive from Save the Chil­dren, said pas­sen­gers wanted to help Fi­jian chil­dren who had been af­fected by TC Win­ston. Re­ceiv­ing the do­na­tion, Save the Chil­dren Fiji rep­re­sen­ta­tive , Kini Su­lua, said they were grate­ful for the kind do­na­tion that had been re­ceived to help chil­dren. “There are many chil­dren out there who will def­i­nitely need these sta­tionery. We have been trav­el­ling to the in­te­rior of Raki­raki, Tavua and other parts of Fiji try­ing to reach out to af­fected chil­dren,” he said. Mr Salua said the do­na­tion by the tourists would bring smiles to

their faces.
