People living in Tropical Cyclone affected areas can expect more assistance after BRED Bank Fiji made a cash donation of $112,500 to the Prime Minister’s TC Yasa Relief Fund.

BRED Bank Fiji CEO, Thierry Charras-Gillot says they are aware of the need for financial assistance to rebuild damaged homes, schools and infrastructure and this donation shows their commitment to the Fijian communities.

Charras-Gillot says to extend their support to the Fijian government during these difficult times their parent bank, BRED Banque Populaire in France and BRED Bank Fiji collected this donation.


Prime Minister, Voreqe Bainimarama says government will ensure that this donation reaches those families in need as there is still a lot of relief work to be carried out in affected communities.

Bainimarama conveyed his sincere gratitude to the board, management and staff of BRED Bank Fiji for the kind gesture.
