The Adventist Development Relief Agency or ADRA Fiji today reached out to assist 55 households of people with disabilities in the Suva-Nausori corridor as part of its COVID-19 response.

The cash distribution was made possible through funding assistance from the Fiji Women’s Rights Movement.

Multi-purpose cash is designed to flexibly meet basic needs in humanitarian response.

It offers the simplest, most direct method of meeting a crisis-affected community’s diverse and urgent needs such as food, water, medication, adult diapers, and transportation.

Since the second outbreak in April, ADRA Fiji has assisted close to 4000 households nationwide with multi-purpose cash both for COVID19 and TC Yasa Response through the support from the European Union Aid, NZ Aid Programme and Australian Aid.

This cash assistance was mostly distributed through e-transfer (mpaisa, my cash or bank transfer) to minimise contact and risk of COVID-19 transmission.
