Your Generosity Helps Cyclone Evan Victims

In mid-December 2012 Cyclone Evan cut a swath of destruction through the Fijian Islands, ruining crops and turning people’s lives upside down. The Loloma Foundation made an appeal to our supporters to help purchase food and necessities until new crops could be planted and lives restored to some sort of order.  Most all of their crops were uprooted, blown away and flooded.   Because they live in extremely rural settings, they have little income and no access to “going to a mainland market to buy food”.

I am very pleased to share that that the response was quick and most generous. By the first week of 2013 more than $2,800 US was donated and 350 bags full of flour, rice, tuna, noodles, salt and were distributed to the families of Yageta and Vuaki.

To all of you, Vinaka Vaka Levu.
