12.9 tonnes of help from Indonesia
The Indonesian Military (TNI) will dispatch 12.9 tonnes of humanitarian aid to Fiji to help communities affected by Tropical Cyclone Harold.
A Hercules aircraft belonging to the Indonesian Air Force will transport the aid to Fiji. The aircraft will arrive at the Nadi International Airport tonight from the Halim Perdanakumuna airport.
The flight route was Jakarta-Makassar-Merauke-New Caledonia-Fiji. The humanitarian aid includes basic necessities such as tents, towels, and blankets, which is part of the support pledged by the Indonesian Embassy in Suva.
Commander of the Indonesian National Armed Forces Marshal Hadi Tjahjanto in a statement said: “Indonesia’s current situation and the hardships (faced) during the COVID-19 pandemic have not reduced our humanitarian spirit to provide support to the people of Fiji, who may have experienced worse things.”
