ASSISTANCE to communities of Cakaudrove as part of Severe TC Winston rehabilitation program included food bags, emergency response kits, school building materials and library books.
Initiated by the Rotary Club of Savusavu, damaged school buildings in the province had also received building materials given by the club.
President Barbra L’Ami said more than 100 food bags were distributed to affected families.
“The food bags were donated and we gave them out to all the affected villages in the province and we are still helping the affected people.
“We have also helped out in schools with painting, repairing of buildings and donated materials to help school management repair classrooms. We have also donated library books to schools that lost their libraries in the cyclone and we have more proposals to help out cyclone victims,” she said.
The hospital in Savusavu, Mrs L’Ami said was also part of it.
Last week, the team painted the outpatient area as part of their community assistance.
Team leader at the hospital, Carol Hubert, said Dulux Fiji gave $2000 worth of paint to help them with the project.
“We have been working in the hospital doing a lot of work to give it a different look by painting the walls and it’s all part of giving back to the community,” she said.
