04:54 am GMT+12, 22/02/2021, Fiji

The Australian Government has announced a total response package of F$4.23 million (AUD$2.65M) to support the Fijian Government’s efforts to assist communities affected by Tropical Cyclone Ana.
 
Two Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) C-17 aircraft have already arrived in Nadi bringing with them relief supplies as part of this support, including hygiene, kitchen and shelter tool kits, sleeping mats and blankets, and other humanitarian relief supplies for immediate use by affected families.
 
In addition to supplying vital humanitarian equipment, this package will assist the Fijian Government to restore health and education services damaged by Tropical Cyclone Ana, and support the Fiji Red Cross and other community service organisations to improve food security, health and hygiene in affected communities.
 
Australian High Commissioner to Fiji, John Feakes, said Australia was pleased to be able to support its Fijian vuvale as it responds to Tropical Cyclone Ana.
 
“The Fijian Government, NDMO and other emergency response personnel on the ground are doing fantastic work responding to the impacts of Tropical Cyclone Ana and Australia’s support will help them to continue these efforts. It’s been a particularly tough year for Fijians already and the thoughts and prayers of Australians are with you all at this time,” he added.
