Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama has received in New York a donation of US$8730 (F$18,064) for victims of Cyclone Winston.

This amount was raised by children of the Pacific islanders there.

Mr Bainimarama is in New York for the signing of the Paris Agreement which took place yesterday.

In all his addresses at the UN meetings he had been highlighting the damage caused by the Cyclone Winston.

He also called for all countries to not only ratify the agreement, but to further lower the proposed cap on global warming from 2 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels to 1.5 degrees.

Mr Bainimarama also thanked all those that had helped Fiji after the cyclone.
