Red Cross conducts assessment, gives relief

Update: 5:21PM THE Fiji Red Cross Society has distributed basic household items and pre-packed kits to the Western Division since the Easter weekend.

Red Cross marketing and events manager Bridget Middenway-Blume said they would continue with the distribution as numbers in evacuation centers continue to increase.  

“We will continue until end of the week through its Western Divisional Office and EOCs in Sigatoka, Nadi, Lautoka, Ba, Tavua and Rakiraki which have been activated,” Ms. Middenway-Blume said. 

She added the recipients of relief items would be individual or households who have been assessed in conjunction with the commissioner’s office.
