ROTARY Fiji has visited the worst hurricane-affected areas in the west of Viti Levu.

A statement from the group said the team consisted of 30 Rotarians from the Suva Rotary Clubs with seven four-wheel-drive vehicles.

It included senior Fiji Rotarians as well as representatives from the Australia and New Zealand high commissions.

According to the statement the group distributed food packs and further assessed the situation.

"We have undertaken an appeal for any clothes/shoes that people have no further use for, which are in usable condition.

"The drop-off points are at two designated areas — Niranjans Grantham Rd, Suva and Navutu, Lautoka," the statement said.

The group also distributed Rotary Emergency Response Kits (ERKs) to families that lost a significant part of their belongings or homes.
