The Prime Minister Hon. Voreqe Bainimarama this morning received a cheque of $1.2m from his Solomon Islands counterpart Hon. Manasseh Sogavare to assist the Fijian government’s relief efforts following TC Winston.

During their meeting, Prime Minister Bainimarama thanked Prime Minister Sogavare for the donation received from the people and government of Solomon Islands.

He highlighted that the donation would go into a fund established by Government to directly benefit those Fijians who have been left homeless, without adequate food, water and essential services – especially those in rural and maritime communities, by TC Winston.

Prime Minister Bainimarama also provided a brief update on the collective relief work-taking place in affected parts of the country. He added that despite the devastation caused by TC Winston, all Fijians were united in rebuilding the lives of all those affected.

As Chairman of the Melanesian Spearhead Group, Prime Minister Sogavare is visiting member countries to update them on the developments taking place within the MSG.
