In my visits to all the villages and settlements, I have been telling people that a big amount of donation, funding and support has come from the local communities. Most of the relief supplies distributed by DISMAC to affected areas are given by the Fijian businesses, communities and individuals

We are grateful to the Chinese community here for the financial assistance rendered to our people in these difficult times.

Chinese Association of Fiji President, Jenny Seeto said Fijians of Chinese descent, who were born and bred in some of the affected rural communities, also donated funds.

Contributing towards restoring, rebuilding and rehabilitation efforts after TC Winston is important for all of us.

Our members are excited about being a part of the rehabilitation initiatives and the Prime Minister’s efforts to collect funds.
