The Australian Government provided assistance for the provision of 1000 hygiene and 1000 dignity kits. The donation took care of the cost of hiring a helicopter which took the Red Cross team to Kadavu this week.

 

The Australian High Commission has assisted the Fiji Red Cross Society with a donation $131,070 for victims of the recent floods.

Society director-general Filipe Nainoca highlighted this during a press conference at its headquarters in Suva yesterday.

He said the Fiji Red Cross Society was thankful for the generous support provided by the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs (DFAT).

Mr Nainoca said the assistance by DFAT was for the most vulnerable people affected by  Tropical Cyclone Josie and TC Keni over the past two weeks.

The Australian Government through DFAT provided the assistance for the provision of 1000 hygiene and 1000 dignity kits.

The donation also took care of the cost of hiring a helicopter which took the Red Cross team to Kadavu this week.

“DFAT is one of our biggest partners,” Mr Nainoca said.

“This assistance allows the Fiji Red Cross to reach all Fijians in the worst-affected areas in the Western Division and on Kadavu.”
