Two Fijian-born people now living in Australia have donated two containers of supplies for victims of Tropical Cyclone Winston.

Vini Waininao, 58, has been living in Sydney in Campbell town for the past 35 years.

She returned here on April 25 to receive the first container of supplies.

She is originally from Nabuli, Rewa.

“Bill Raikuna my older brother was the one who gave us the idea and we decided to fill two containers of supplies that will assist the cyclone affected victims,” Mrs Waininao said.

It was an initiative of the community at large and schools that contributed with donations and hospitals in the community donated towels.

The areas that Mrs Waininao and her friend Ane Ware, 72, of Vanuabalavu, Lau, would be distributing the relief supplies are Tailevu and villages in Rewa like Navelaca, Narocake and Caci.

They will also travel to the village of Sinuvaca in Koro Island.

“We will go to Koro by boat and Ane will be furnishing the pastor’s house and church that has been damaged due to the impact of the cyclone,” Mrs Waininao said.

The second container is likely to arrive at the end of the month, to help cyclone victims in Vanuabalavu.

The relief items include furniture, food, water, books, clothing, mattresses and crockery.
