Former Fiji citizens living abroad have collected around 15,000 tonnes of food rations for flood victims.
The citizens living in Australia, New Zealand, Canada and US have formed an organisation namely Yaadein Vision International will be distributing the ration from tomorrow.
Organisation’s Fiji representative Lorima Voravora says the ration arrived today and they have identified families whom they will assist.
“All the goods will be stored at the Government Supplies warehouse here in Lautoka and will be distributed accordingly – according to the needs of the whole Western division. Part of this will go to the students – the hostels especially, who need assistance in running their hostels so that students are fed during this difficult times, because their farms have been destroyed by the floods."
Voravora says the cost of the rations is around $60,000 Australian.
