The European Union (EU) has deployed an emergency assessment expert in Fiji to help assess the damage caused by tropical cyclone Winston and to advise the EU on the need for humanitarian assistance.

The expert from the European Commission’s Humanitarian Aid and Civil Protection Department arrived into the country this morning and will begin work immediately.

”The European Union is closely monitoring the situation in Fiji. An expert from our Emergency Response Coordination Centre in Bangkok has landed in Fiji to take part in an assessment of impact of the humanitarian impact of Tropical Cyclone Winston and to recommend how best the EU should support relief and recovery in the wake of the cyclone,” said EU Ambassador to Fiji and the Pacific, Andrew Jacobs.

The European Union stands with the people of Fiji at this difficult time.
