FI­JIAN GOV­ERN­MENT ES­TAB­LISHES DIS­AS­TER RE­LIEF FUNDS

Fiji Sun - - Business -

Trop­i­cal Cy­clone Win­ston – the most dev­as­tat­ing storm on record in the South­ern Hemi­sphere – re­cently reached our shores, de­stroy­ing homes and liveli­hoods, and cut­ting many Fi­jians off from util­i­ties, telecom­mu­ni­ca­tions and essen­tial med­i­cal ser­vices. In re­sponse to this cri­sis, the Fi­jian Gov­ern­ment is work­ing hard to co-or­di­nate res­cue and re­cov­ery ef­forts. There is a great need for ad­di­tional re­sources to ur­gently ad­dress the needs of af­fected Fi­jians and as­sist with the re­build­ing process. These Fi­jians need your help. Many have been stranded in the af­ter­math of TC Win­ston and ur­gently re­quire life-sav­ing ser­vices, sup­plies and shel­ter. The Fi­jian Gov­ern­ment has es­tab­lished bank ac­counts to re­ceive financial dona­tions in the wake of this cri­sis. These funds will be used to di­rectly ben­e­fit those Fi­jians who have been left home­less, with­out ad­e­quate food, wa­ter and essen­tial ser­vices – es­pe­cially those in ru­ral and mar­itime com­mu­ni­ties. Dona­tions can be made through the bank ac­counts listed be­low and donors will not be charged any fees, in­clud­ing overseas trans­ac­tions.
