Global Compassion, the charitable arm of Christian Mission Fellowship International, has been able to mobilise its church districts nationwide less than 24 hours after conducting its initial survey to provide immediate assistance and relief to those impacted by Tropical Cyclone Winston.

On Tuesday food rations were distributed to 246 families in the Tailevu North area reaching Veicorocoro settlement, Nadrano Village, Luvunavuaka, Natalaira, Naqelekuro, Lawaki and neighbouring settlements along the Dawasamu stretch up to Natalaira.

Most families reached have been left homeless following the cyclone and are living in make-shift facilities, waiting for assistance.

Global Compassion aims to provide immediate assistance to bridge the need while Government is conducting assessments and co-ordinating national relief efforts.

The organisation is working in consultation with the National Disaster Management Office (NDMO).

As of yesterday, Global Compassion has opened a food distribution centre in Labasa and mobilised the church network in the North to serve people from Bua, Savusavu and Taveuni, and also in the Western Division in Lautoka to respond to the immediate needs in the West.

There will also be a team taking food rations across by fibre boat to Moturiki in Lomaiviti and Qoma Village in Tailevu.

Founder and president of CMFI, Reverend Suliasi Kurulo, mobilised Global Compassion disaster relief operations, immediately following the onslaught of Tropical Cyclone Winston last Saturday.

Global Compassion welcomes donations from those willing to partner with us contribute to the purchase of food items as packing continues at the Food Distribution Centre in Kinoya.
