Minister for Education, Rosy Akbar says they have surpassed their target to assist 6000 students in the Tropical Cyclone Yasa affected areas as a lot of people are coming forward to donate.

This follows a donation of $77,500 the Ministry received today from Yaadein Vision which will be used to assist almost 1,200 students in 42 schools.

Each student in these schools will be given stationery packs and school bags.

While speaking at the TC Yasa School Relief Distribution by United Fiji Community Australia and Yaadein Vision at Guru Nanak Primary School in Labasa today Akbar says when the Ministry had initially met with its stakeholders they had planned to assist 6000 students in the most affected parts of the North.

Akbar says some organizations have also approached her to provide shoes and uniform to the affected areas.

She says once the school opens, they will request the heads of schools to send the Ministry a list of the assistance the school needs and then they will be able to assist them.

The Ministry is working with the Fiji Teachers Union, Fiji Muslim League, Sathya Sai Service Organisation of Fiji, Yaadein Vision, SODELPA, Forklift Fiji and TISI Sangam to provide students with school bags and stationery to affected students.

Akbar has thanked all the stakeholders for their support.
