The Australian government has donated AUD$2million (FJ$3m) to non-governmental organisation Save the Children Fiji to assist with education and water needs.

The funds are to help the affected schools and students to get temporary learning space with educational materials so children can resume classes as soon as possible.

It is also to assist communities to restore water to the damaged schools.

The organisation has provided education material, rehabilitation of water, sanitation and hygiene facilities (WASH) in the Northern Division like Bua, Savusavu, Taveuni and Koro with WASH rehabilitation provided in child- friendly areas like Rakiraki, Tavua, Ba and Lautoka.

Save the Children Fiji has assisted about 500 students in the West with school bag kits and have provided child- friendly spaces.

The team will be working in the North this week to assist students who have been affected.
