Others first

Wise Muavono,  Lautoka

Although there’s a mentality that disasters provoke selfishness and brutal survival-of-the-fittest competition, the reality is that people coping with crises are actually quite altruistic.

That’s what we’re already seeing in the places worst hit by monster storm Cyclone Winston.

In the coming days we’ll be seeing altruism, co-operativeness, and camaraderie among the affected population. God bless Fiji.

 

Counselling upport

Floyd Robinson,  Nasinu

 

Pictures of damage, destruction and disbelief continue to flood news websites and social media. It is difficult to hold back ones emotions especially for women, men and children who have experienced the full brunt of Cyclone Winston.

Whilst messages of support and encouragement continue to flow, there is one thing that appears to be forgotten.

Our men, women and children from affected communities are traumatised and in need of counselling soon. Children and the elderly are amongst the most affected.

Are there plans for support in the form of counselling?

Do we have enough trained or experienced counsellors? Let’s just hope that counselling is part of plans for support towards affected communities.
