600 families affected by Cyclone Yasa will soon receive much-needed assistance after a donation of $40,000 worth of products by Panamex New Zealand in partnership with their distribution partners Tappoo Group.

The donation was made to Fiji-based NGO Sai Prema Foundation who will include the products as part of their relief packs.

The products donated include canned baked beans and spaghetti, sanitary pads, children’s diapers, mosquito coils, batteries, washing powder and juice packs.

Panamex New Zealand’s Sales and Marketing Manager Stephen Precious says the Sai Prema Foundation has been doing wonderful work and we have confidence in them that they will distribute these products to those with the most need.

The Sai Prema Foundation has helped over 7,000 people in Vanua Levu through its on-the-ground distribution of relief packs last week.

They are working on conducting two more major distributions to the people of Vanua Levu and the Lau Group.
