US Ambassador Frankie Reed has authorised the release of $US150,000 (more than $F268,000) to provide immediate assistance to those in desperate need of critical emergency relief supplies.
The embassy of the US gave $US50,000 (more than $F89,000) to Fiji Red Cross and $US100,000 (more than $F178,000) to Rotary Fiji.
The gift is for the provision of emergency relief supplies that include blankets, water purification systems, water tanks, gloves, boots, diapers and hygiene kits for distribution by the Disaster Management Committee.
At the handing over ceremony, Ms Reed said: "We're all sadly aware those living in the Western and Central Divisions have suffered yet another tragic round of flooding even worse than that which occurred earlier in the year.
"Our hearts truly go out to the men, women, and children enduring extreme hardships at this time, and our hopes and thoughts are with those working valiantly to help them recover."
Ms Reed said over the weekend, more relief supplies were to be distributed to victims of the floods and acknowledged Rotary Fiji for their commitment in helping the embassy respond to the crisis under severe time constraints.
Ministry of Provincial Development permanent secretary Inia Seruiratu thanked Ms Reed for the support provided by the American people.
"One of our major needs is water and I thank the embassy for donating water tanks which will greatly assist the people," Mr Seruiratu said.
"Our teams in the West are conducting damage assessments and planning short, medium and long terms recovery," he said.
Meanwhile, Ms Reed said the embassy, in partnership with the University of the South Pacific (USP), was holding a flood appeal concert to raise more funds for those in flood affected areas.
"USP's Oceanic Dance Theatre and Pasifika Voices is coming together with an American guest choir ù Main Street Singers from California ù for a song and dance ensemble at the Civic Auditorium in Suva.
"I encourage everyone to come along to the concert and support this worthy cause and cultural exchange," Ms Reed said.
