ChildFund Australia in Fiji

In 2016, ChildFund Australia partnered with Habitat for Humanity to help children and families recover from the worst impacts of Cyclone Winston.

In 2016, Tropical Cyclone Winston made landfall in Fiji, causing massive devastation to local communities. The strongest tropical cyclone to hit the country and the South Pacific Basin in recorded history, it flattened entire villages in its wake – leaving more than 120,000 people without shelter, safe water sources and power.

Our response was split in two phases: helping families in the immediate aftermath of the disaster, and implementing long-term solutions to help families better prepare for disasters in the future.
