VUDA MARINA FIJI STAFF APPEAL
Despite their toughness and amazing attitude to life, they do need our help. Therefore Vuda Marina will be donating all Severe Weather Surcharge fees collected during this cyclone (which applies to vessels who are not our normal, long-term customers) and using it to setup a staff relief fund. At this moment it looks like this will be in excess of $10,000. We would like to get it up to $25,000 so if you would like to assist then please send through a financial donation to our bank account with the reference "FIJISTRONG" and we will be arranging a cash payout next week on a 'needs-basis' with those experiencing the most damage receiving the most cash. Any little bit helps but perhaps we could recommend an amount equivalent to the Severe Weather Surcharge IF it had of applied to you.
Thanks for reading and taking the time to consider helping.
Vuda Marina, General Manager
We have just finished a food run up North past Rakiraki where the devastation is very hard to describe. Many of our staff still have not heard from their families especially in the islands. After seeing what happened to Rakiraki, I can only imagine what happened to the villages in the islands. Any funds the staff receive will be either be used by them personally for their repairs to their homes or to help feed and cloth their families affected by the storm. Even $10 goes a long way. Please give generously.
