Digicel Fiji staff members hit the road on Sunday on Vanua Levu to provide assistance through the distribution of relief rations to many of those families affected by STC Yasa last week.

“An early response is vital to help the affected families in the North to see them get back on their feet in this time of crisis,” Digicel Fiji CEO Farid Mohammed said.

“Our teams moved in quickly to help the most vulnerable in our communities from Sunday and they are still at it today. We responded immediately by sending our engineering team with equipment and sales and distribution staff with food ration supplies to the affected areas.”

About 500 relief ration packs were distributed in Nabouwalu, Nasarawaqa, Dreketi, Nabiti, Wailevu East, Belego, Nadoiviri and Savusavu.

All affected areas were also provided with charging stations so villagers could charge their mobile phones and other devices. Digicel also facilitated communications for government response teams on the ground.

“Digicel is proud to be part of a community that is coming together in this time of need to support the relief and rehabilitation efforts in Vanua Levu. Digicel wishes all families a quick and safe recovery.”
