A team of 30 travelled from Suva to deliver "Buckets Full of Love" which contained rice, flour, yellow split peas, milk powder, breakfast crackers, tea bags, juice, dental kits and blankets, "Building Kits" containing straps, hammer and nails, as well as sanitary pads, new clothing for men, women and children, mosquito nets, mats, hundreds of packets of noodles, 1,500 packets of Bhuja (Fijian bean-mix snack) and 1,000 cupcakes for children.

The distribution effort was planned in conjunction with the National Disaster Management Office (NDMO); the United Nations Office; Minister for Defence, National Security and Policing, Rural and Maritime Development and Disaster Management, Hon. Inia Seruiratu and Assistant Minister for Disaster Management, Rural and Maritime Development, Hon. Vijay Nath.

 

The areas covered Nabouwalu, Bua, Urata Cakaudrove, Nakawaqa, Nukubolu, Dreketi, Naibulu Irrigation 1 and 2, Matasawa Reketi, Qaraniqoli, Matasawa, Malawai, Vunidagi, Somosomo, Saivo Junction, Water Lily Pond, Tabia Top, Seaqaqa, Namara Sqauater Settlement, Daku, Wainikoro, Galedamu, Kilikoso, Waiqele, Siberia, Nagigi, Vunivau, Valevasoga, Voca 2 and Bulileka.

 

The relief effort was only possible with the prayers and support of numerous individuals from Fiji and around the world who felt deeply for those devastated by cyclone Yasa, as well as a number of people who selflessly assisted the efforts at ground zero.
