Local artists that will be performing at the TC Yasa Appeal Concert are defying their challenges to assist people in affected areas.

Fiji’s Vude Queen, Laisa Vulakoro says musicians are also facing a hard time but they have come willingly to give their time and talent towards this good cause.

Vulakoro says they are grateful for the support of their partners and the public who have even offered to cover the travelling expenses for the artists.

She says they will be buying relief items from the money raised in this concert for people affected by Cyclone Yasa.

Vulakoro says they are closely working with the National Disaster Management Office to identify relief items needed and in which areas the assistance is needed to avoid duplication.

Vulakoro says this is not going to be their last, they will organise more depending on people’s needs and demand.

The TC Yasa Appeal Concert will be held this Saturday at Ratu Sukuna Park from 11am to 7pm.

Entry is free.
