The Fiji Rotuma Backyard Farmers Association donated $7,000 worth of food supplies towards the Prime Minister’s Tropical Cyclone relief efforts.

The relief food supplies includes 160kg of yams, taro and cartons of food supplies.


While officiating at the handing over, the Minister for Disaster Management Inia Seruiratu says the Agriculture sector is one of the most adversely affected by TC Harold.

Seruiratu says food supplies will be distributed immediately to the families impacted by TC Harold.

Chairman of the Fiji Rotuma Backyard Farmers Association Patrick Veu says that due to impacts of TV Harold and the COVID-19 pandemic, the association decided to donate the food supplies that are usually displayed during the Rotuma Day.
