Fiji Cyclone Emergency Appeal

Give shelter, food, and water to Cyclone victims in Fiji

Supporting people left homeless by Cyclones

Anglican Aid is responding to the massive destruction wrought by Cyclone Yasa and Cyclone Ana in the Northern region of Fiji. Cyclone Ana struck just one month after Cyclone Yasa, and has caused even more devastation, as landslides and flooding bring more destruction than the cyclone events themselves.

Working with Christian partners on the ground, assistance from Anglican Aid has already made a significant difference for families who have lost homes, crops, and livelihoods.

Anglican Aid is partnering with Bishop Henry Bull, the Anglican Bishop of Fiji’s Northern Division, based in Dreketi, and the Rev. Joseph Swamy of the Methodist Church, Indian Division, based on Taveuni Island, as they coordinate distribution.

Homes destroyed by the cyclone

Homes and crops damaged

Bishop Henry Bull told Anglican Aid about the extent of the damage:

“We will be out of power for 3 weeks. All roads are damaged. Floods and landslides have done more damage than Cyclone Yasa.” (Cyclone Yasa hit Fiji on 17 December). 

“I have never seen anything like it. My house looked like it was built on the sea.”

 

“I have never seen anything like it. My house looked like it was built on the sea.”

 

The community in Fiji has fears for the future. “Most of our people live in a rural context and are small subsistence farmers of very low income. Most livestock have drowned and crops [are] completely damaged.”

“We are working together now as a community to look after one another.”

Bishop Henry Bull said that in the midst of this tragedy and loss, Christians in Fiji are still clinging close to Jesus.

The Lord is close to the brokenhearted, he rescues those who are crushed in spirit (Psalm 34:18). Our most profound and intimate days of worship will likely be in the darkest days of our lives.”

Your donation of love will help those:

  • Who need a roof over their heads – some have lost the roof of their houses. For some, the whole house has been damaged. Most of the people in this region live in a rural context and are small subsistence farmers of very low income. They have small houses which need repair.

 

  • Who need drinking water. Water sources have been polluted by runoff and are not safe to drink. Drinking water is urgently needed.

 

  • Who are short of food. Food packs can add on to what families have at the moment until their crops are replanted and ready for harvest.

 

Will you help Anglican Aid provide emergency relief to the people of Fiji?

Your tax-deductible gift will be used for shelter, food, clean water, and tools to clear debris. All relief will be distributed by the local church in the name of Jesus.
