These include providing hot meals for hundreds of people taking shelter in evacuation centres in the Western Division.

Swami Sanyuktanand, who leads the team, said they had been feeding 500 people affected by the flood at evacuation centres daily.

“Fiji Sevashram since Thursday initiated its immediate relief response to Cyclone Zena floods which affected the Western Viti Levu,” Mr Sanyuktanand said.
