HBF sends help to Fiji Cyclone victims

Fiji has been hit by a series of cyclones causing floods and havoc. Hindu Benevolent fund of Hindu Council of Australia issued an appeal for new clothes, bed sheets and shoes. There was an overwhelming response by the Hindu community in Sydney and many pallets of helpful goods were collected at Gateway Cafe. Sai Ji took charge of the goods and many volunteers came to help sort the goods and pack them ready for shipping.

The goods were dispatched to be sent to Fiji on the night of 18th April 2018.

Cash donations were also collected into Hindu Benevolent Fund (HBF) account and will be sent to Fiji to help pay for emergency food.

APPEAL to help Flood/Cyclone victims in FIJI

You may be aware of natural disaster that hit Fiji two consecutive weekends and many people are without homes, food and water. Situation is still worse and again Category 3 cyclone likely to hit. The floods have washed away all domestic belongings. Worst affected area is the Western Division of Fiji which has almost half of FIJI’s population and the main cane growing area.

The immediate need is to replenish the homes with their food, clothing and shelter. Food requirements are by way of rice, flour, cooking oils, dhall etc. however there will be a need for what to cook on and cook under including clothes and footwear.Many organizations have mobilized locally in Fiji and overseas to provide necessary relief.   

Hindu Council of Australia along with Hindu Benevolent fund and Karma Kitchen are making an appeal for your extending your helping hand to Cyclone Victims of FIJI.
