Minister for National Disaster reassures public that attended Gospel Festival fundraiser in Suva.

We’ll definitely build back better and we will definitely build back stronger, says Minister Inia Seruiratu.

These were the Minister for National Disaster Management’s words of encouragement while addressing the large crowd gathered at Ratu Sukuna Park on Saturday morning for the ‘Gospel Festival for Cyclone Winston Freewill Offering’.

In highlighting the devastation caused by TC Winston, Minister Seruiratu called on disaster management stakeholders and partners to continue working with Government as the road to recovery after the damage caused by Winston depended heavily on all Fijians’ support and contribution.

“Government has worked hard and achieved much progress but this can only continue to happen through key partnership with agencies, international partners, NGOs, civil society groups, and including families and individuals across Fiji,” he said.

“There are Fijians who have been traumatised and those that are still in shock because of the devastation caused by Winston, but we will persevere through this and come out stronger if we take collective responsibility.”

The concert was organised by the Fiji Gospel Music artists and the proceeds from the event will be directed towards the Prime Minister’s Disaster Relief Fund.

Minister Seruiratu acknowledged the organisers of the festival and reminded the audience on the purpose of the day’s concert.

Close to 1000 people attended the full-day event.
