Assistance given after flooding in Fiji


The Church "has assisted the government with relief items worth $55,000," according to a report in The Fiji Times.

The food and other relief items are being distributed to communities hit hard by flooding earlier this year.

The newspaper reports that "the assistance was sourced by members of the LDS Church worldwide, as part of its humanitarian assistance."

Lieutenant-Colonel Inia Seruiratu, the Ministry of Provincial Development and National Disaster Management permanent secretary, told The Fiji Times: "We want to thank the LDS Church and its members for this kind assistance."

He said that the food items had come "at an opportune time," and gave an assurance that the supplies would be distributed to needy communities quickly.
