Fijian Flood subsides and Rotary is there!!

Some Easter reading.

Continue to encourage your clubs, Rotarians and the public  to donate both to our general appeal or for  replacement ERK’s. Anticipate we will be putting together 800 in the coming weeks. We are putting together a submission to MFAT for a grant for second response in consultation with Rotary Fiji. AUSAID have also provided a grant of A$40,000 to Rotary Fiji.



An update from New Zealand Government's Foreign Affairs and Trade Department:

Grateful Fijians receive an Emergency Response Kit
The initial package of New Zealand support (NZ$500,000 or FJ$750,000) has been gratefully received by Fiji authorities. The package consists of (a) NZ$310,000 to the Fiji Red Cross to include the replenishment of its supplies; (b) up to NZ$117,000 to replenish 200 Rotary New Zealand emergency kits that are pre-positioned in Fiji and are currently being distributed to severely affected communities; and (c) New Zealand relief supplies.
