ChildFund Australia in Fiji

With more than 120,000 people in urgent need of shelter assistance after the worst cyclone in Fiji's history, Cyclone Winston, ensuring children and families have safe and adequate shelter is the top priority of emergency relief efforts being undertaken by Habitat for Humanity in partnership with ChildFund Australia.

Temporary evacuation centres are now reaching capacity, and there are fears that the scale of the disaster could increase rapidly, as power and communications to many remote islands remains cut off. More than 40 people have lost their lives, with fears that figure could increase.
