The Australian Government has pledged an initial $350,000 for Fiji government’s relief efforts for Tropical Cyclone Harold.

This has been confirmed by the Australian High Commissioner to Fiji, John Feakes.

Feakes has also paid tribute to the Fiji's emergency and disciplined services working to keep Fijians safe during TC Harold.

Meanwhile, Australian Prime Minister, Scott Morrison says they are thinking of the Pacific family today, especially Solomon Islands, Vanuatu, Fiji and Tonga, as Tropical Cyclone Harold moves through the region.

He says Australia is with the Pacific.

Morrison adds they will continue to support their friends as they recover from this disaster and as we battle coronavirus together.
