Fiji Community in PNG donates to Cyclone Winston Victims


The Fijian Community in Port Moresby today handed over a cheque of over K139-000 as well as 40+ cartons of second hand clothing, linens and beddings for victims of cyclone Winston that caused major damages in Fiji at least 2 months ago.

First Secretary of the Fiji High Commission Mr. Vilitati Mataitini was on hand to receive the cheque and goodies from the Cyclone Winston Appeal Committee Chairman Maciu Koroitubuna and members.
Chairman Koroitubuna said the committee was formed right after Cyclone Winston at the call of the Fijian High Commission to solicit donations for the victims through fundraisings and gatherings.
“We like to thank the friends of Fijians in Papua New Guinea, business houses, families and organisations who have coming willingly to support the cause,” said the chairman.
First Secretary Mr. Mataitini said this is the last of the donations and the monies have already been deposited into the receiving account in Fiji and should be available by the end of this week.
He said he was pleased at the donations and said the gesture was enhancing people to people relationship for those who needed assistance.
The Commission also conveyed its gratitude to Air Niugini who will be airlifting the cartons of clothing items to Fiji free of charge.
