Rotary in Fiji is providing immediate response to those severely affected by the recent and ongoing flooding.
Rotary New Zealand World Community Service (Stuart Batty) and District 9920 Governor Alan Eyes are in regular communication with Fiji.
There is a coordinated response being managed by Rotarian Bob Niranjan with distribution of prepositioned Emergency Response Kits and food parcels being assembled and delivered to families and communities.
Rotarians in New Zealand have asked how they can assist personally. We invite all Rotarians and others, to consider making a donation to purchase a NZ $40 food parcel which will provide basic non-perishables for a family of four for a week. These are being supplied to Rotary on credit in good faith by grocery merchants in Fiji.
As money is urgently needed

If the food parcel appeal is oversubscribed, then the surplus will be used to directly assist those in need and/or replenish the Emergency Response Kits.
Rotary in New Zealand also requests clubs to consider making a donation to replenish the Emergency Response Kits which are currently being distributed. A suggested figure is $600 per kit. www.rnzwcs,org provides more details.
