Cyclone Evan Disaster update

On 17th December 2012, Severe Tropical Cyclone Evan hit the Fijian islands, causing catastrophic damage. Damaging heavy waves, rain and thunderstorms including severe flash flooding hit the Yasawas and Western Division.  The Yasawas communities where the GVI Charitable Trust work was severely affected. Winds exceeding 125 mph brought down trees, blocking roads and blowing away homes/roofs with widespread power and water outages. Many have already lost all their belongings. Major flooding is a high concern with powerful swells hitting the coastal communities and more rains to come.

In Fiji, access to safe drinking water is limited and water shortages can pose a real threat to daily life and the health of the communities. As a result of Cyclone Evan, water supply to rural areas has been interrupted as a result of the country wide power cuts. With currently 13,976 evacuees in 242 Evacuation centres, water shortages could be an even greater problem. 

As such, the GVI Charitable Trust has set up a new appeal to help raise funds for the communities we work with in Fiji. If you would like to help, please do have a look at our project page - http://www.globalgiving.org/projects/cyclone-evan-fiji/

Thank you for all your support in 2012 and we look forward to be in touch again in 2013!
