Flooding in Fiji – Day 4 – 2nd April Clean Up Begins

The ability of the Fijian people to get up, stand up, and clean up after being knocked down by such a viscous act of nature is by far one of the most precious things about the country.

To do it with a smile on their face knowing that tomorrow brings another day is simply an inspiration to one and all.

If you are able to donate we will see that your efforts go towards those who need it most. Rather than give it directly to the PM’s Flood appeal I feel it is better to go straight towards food, water, clothing and educational items of individual households who need it the most. So far we have have over 2800 visits and unfortunately no donations. So if each person who is looking at the devastation on this page could kindly donate US$1.00 we would be able to help someone in need.

So far we have a total of 7786 people in evacuation facilities around the country which is by the most i’ve ever seen.
