Three trucks full of relief items from Vodafone Fiji has been deployed to the Northern Division that will assist families who have been severely affected by Tropical Cyclone Yasa.

About 250 volunteers turned up at the Vodafone Fiji warehouse at Valelevu yesterday to assist the Vodafone staff in packing about 500 cartons of relief items.

Vodafone Fiji Head of E-Commerce and Corporate Affairs Shailendra Prasad says each carton has building materials such as pinch bar, hammers, handsaw, nails that will assist affected families in rebuilding their homes.

He says they also included a big tarpaulin which families can use as a temporary roof.

He adds based on the survey done by the National Disaster Management Office, DISMAC and their northern team, the assistance will target families in the most affected areas.

In each carton, they have included items such as dried fruit, biscuits, tinned stuff, noodles, toiletries, bottles of water, flour, candles, plastic plates and utensils, bedsheets and pillowcases.
