Bula,IMPORTANT INFOJust a little clarification from the committee of Fiji Aid Melbourne. We have been asked what we do with the money we collect and do we hand over cash to the disaster victims in fiji?All cash collected during a particular disaster in Fiji is used towards the same disaster stuck victims in Fiji. Just as we have always done.We do not hand over any cash to anyone. One or two members of our committee travel to Fiji and does most of the ground work, gathers information from various sources and uses the money to buy the necessary items required for the victims and provides them with exactly that. This way we control our finance as to where it should be used. After TC Winston.Phase 1Provided food to evacuation centers.Phase 2Food packs to families when they returned home in Western Viti Levu and Savusavu in Vanua Levu.Phase 3Traveled to Fiji, gathered all information and we helped the disaster victims with ROOFING IRONS, MATTRESSES, SOLAR LIGHTS FOR FAMILIES WITH STUDENTS AND LITTLE KIDS,KEROSENE STOVES FOR FAMILIES WITH INFANTS TO HEAT UP MILK AND FOOD,UNIFORMS AND STATIONERY TO STUDENTS, BLOCKS TO BUILD HOUSES, CEMENT & CLOTHES.
