ShelterBox has been busy in Fiji following Cyclone Winston, distributing aid to some of the worst hit and most remote islands. ShelterBoxes were requested by the Fijian Government to help families whose homes had been completely destroyed. Pre-positioned stock was flown out from Auckland and Sydney courtesy of the New Zealand and Australian Governments. A variety of other aid items, including tents, solar lights and Shelter Kits, are being sent to enable early recovery of communities. As always, the Rotary community has been more than generous in their support for our relief efforts. Thanks for your wonderful support.
