The New Zealand Government has provided $1 million worth of assistance to the Fijian Government to help with relief efforts following Tropical Cyclone Ana.
The emergency relief supplies include hygiene kits, mother and infant kits, water containers, water pumps, purification tablets and tarpaulins.
The supplies were transported by the Royal New Zealand Air Force C-130 carrier and the crew members are following strict COVID-19 prevention protocols, with the supplies delivered without making physical contact with locals in Fiji.
The first supplies arrived in the country last Thursday and the second supplies arrived on Saturday.
The New Zealand Government is also supporting local response activities, including the provision of food for people sheltering in evacuation centres, materials to help families construct basic shelter, and the Fiji Red Cross’s relief efforts in partnership with the International Federation of the Red Cross.
The New Zealand Government extends its sympathies to the people of Fiji whose lives have been affected by the cyclone, and also to families who lost their loved ones.
They say New Zealand remains committed to supporting our Pacific neighbours when disaster strikes.
