Please give to the Fiji Cyclone Appeal

Thursday, March 18, 2010

IN the wake of Tropical Cyclone Tomas, the Fiji Times and ANZ Bank yesterday joined forces for the Fiji Cyclone Appeal.

The Fiji Times kicked it off by committing to a $15,000 donation. And ANZ will announce soon how much it will donate.

Donations can be made at ANZ branches worldwide, which will distributed through Fiji Red Cross Society.

"The people of Fiji have an enormous capacity for helping each other, particularly in times of hardship. I'm sure they'll rally to the assistance of their less fortunate.

"We're pleased to be able to assist in both donating money and raising awareness of the fund and we ask everyone to give generously," said Fiji Times MD Anne Fussell.

ANZ Fiji GM and CEO Pacific Central Region Norman Wilson said the bank was committed to helping communities in need following natural disasters.

"In addition to accepting public donations, ANZ will assess the impact to the community and customers in the next couple of days before announcing assistance measures, including a donation to the relief appeal," he said.

Give to the Fiji Cyclone Appeal:

  • ANZ Account # 10616461
  • ANZ Fiji Swift Code is: ANZBFJFX
  • BSB is: 010890 (ANZ House)

All money raised will be donated to the Fiji Red Cross Society for Cyclone Tomas relief efforts.

Names of donors will be published in the Fiji Times.
