The US Embassy today donated a further US$200,000 to the Fiji Red Cross Society for their TC Yasa relief efforts.

While speaking during the handing over ceremony, US Ambassador to Fiji Joseph Cella says he was in the Northern Division and he saw the beautiful resilience of the Fijian people at display.

Cella says Fijian people also showed strength in both preparing for and limiting casualties during TC Yasa.

He adds the USAID has been in existence for almost 60 years.
