The FHTA delegation which was led by President Dixon Seeto presented the amount to the Prime Minister of Fiji Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama yesterday.

Mr. Seeto advised the Prime Minister that many Association properties contributed to local communities via cash or kind immediately after Tropical Cyclone Winston.

Members coordinated with each other to source and transport humanitarian relief supplies all over the country. Many properties and members were also sent relief supplies from their guests and requested that these be sent to areas of need. Some members contributed directly to the Prime Minister’s Relief and Rehabilitation Fund.
