Global Compassion, the charitable arm of Christian Mission Fellowship International was able to mobilise its church districts nationwide less than 24 hours after conducting its initial survey to provide immediate assistance and relief to those impacted by Tropical Cyclone Winston.
Three days after TC Winston struck the Fiji group, food rations were distributed to 246 families in the Tailevu North area reaching Veicorocoro settlement, Nadrano village, Luvunavuaka, Natalaira, Naqelekuro, Lawaki and neighbouring settlements along the Dawasamu stretch up to Natalaira. Most of the families reached have been left homeless following the cyclone and are living in make shift facilities, waiting for assistance.
Global Compassion aims to provide immediate assistance to bridge the need while Government is conducting assessments and coordinating national relief efforts. The organisation is working in consultation with the DISMAC team at the National Disaster Management Office (NDMO)
