Ministry of Rural & Maritime Development and National Disaster Management permanent secretary Meleti Bainimarama received the donation from the  Fiji Sports Council chief executive officer Litiana Loabuka on behalf of the Gallagher Chiefs of New Zealand.

Mr Bainimarama acknowledged the Gallagher Chiefs for their efforts.

BAINIMARAMA: “The Gallagher Chiefs are not just here to play, but to be part of the community and also be part of Fiji’s rebuilding and rehabilitation efforts. Since TC Winston ravaged the country on 20th February, a lot of people affected are still rebuilding their lives. And it is good to know that 3-4 months after the cyclone, people are still thinking of us.”
