A one-time, payment of $100 each will be made this month to over 10,000 recipients across parts of Central division and the provinces of Southern Lau, Kadavu, Serua, Coastal Nadroga/Navosa who were hardest hit by this year’s Tropical Cyclone Harold.

This is being done in collaboration between the United Nations World Food Programme and Fiji’s Ministry of Women, Children and Poverty Alleviation.

World Food Programme Pacific Multi-Country Office Director, Jo Pilgrim says as part of its commitment to ensuring a more food secure Pacific, and supporting shock-responsive social protection, they are proud to be working alongside the Ministry of Women, Children and Poverty Alleviation to help Fijian communities recover and build back stronger after the impacts of TC Harold.

Recipients of the one-time payment include those who are covered by schemes provided by the Ministry, namely, Poverty Benefit Scheme, the Care and Protection Allowance, the Disability Allowance and the Social Pension Scheme.

This will be in addition to the regular social welfare payments provided monthly by the Ministry.
