Friends Helping Fiji
We are a group of Australian guests who love the resort and its incredible staff. We are desperately trying to raise money to rebuild the village. Twenty four homes were damaged beyond repair and 21 are severely damaged. A brand new kindergarten also suffered structural and water damage.
The fundraiser aims to raise urgent funds to build new cylone proof homes and to rebuild damaged buildings. We need materials primarily but will be using our own manpower to help with the rebuild.
Please help us rebuild Nukubalavu Village for the beautiful people who call it home. Four of us are heading to Savusavu this week from Australia to start the process of rebuilding. Any money raised will be distributed by the general manager of the Jean Michel Cousteau Fiji Island Resort Bart Simpson. Your donation means a lot to us, but for the people of Nukubalavu Village it means the world. Vinaka vake levu (Thank you) from the bottom of our hearts.
Today a shipment of supplies left Sydney on its way to Savusavu. A big thanks to Bosch for supplying 2 complete tool kits which will become the 1st additions to the SCF (Savusavu Community Foundation) tool box!
We continue to work with SCF and the JMC to plan the next trip back to Savusavu.
Our next project is looking like a big one.....stay tuned for updates.
Please continue to support our fundraising and know that every little bit helps!
