MORE than 400 families affected by Tropical Depression 15F have been assisted by the Fiji Red Cross Society since Thursday.

Disaster manager co-ordinator Eseroma Ledua confirmed their teams in the Western and Central divisions had covered most affected areas.

"We are working with the Commissioner Central's office. We reconfirm the cases and conduct our own assessment before we assist with relief," Mr Ledua said. "Red Cross has assisted more than 400 families since Thursday."

Mr Ledua said they planned to assist between 40 and 50 families yesterday.

He said according to their assessments, Rakiraki was the worst affected in the West.

"Our team has assisted Lautoka, Ba and Tavua a little bit but not as much as the relief we are assisting with in Rakiraki."

The relief assistance includes clothes, hygiene packs and water containers.
