Volunteer Service Abroad (VSA) is pleased to confirm its four Fiji-based volunteers are safe and well.
VSA International Programme Manager Junior Ulu said, “We would like to thank our volunteers in Fiji. We are thinking of them, and of the people of Fiji after the loss they have experienced, and the long recovery they now face following Cyclone Winston.”
VSA’s volunteers are based in Suva working with our partner UN Women. VSA and UN Women were in constant contact with our volunteers before the cyclone, to ensure they were in safe accommodation with extra supplies.
Our volunteers will continue their work with UN Women to contribute to the recovery.
Junior added, “UN Women’s support of our volunteers has been excellent, and we’re grateful for their help.”
VSA CEO Gill Greer said “We know that while the immediate need for support in Fiji is great, recovery is a long journey. We are committed to working with UN Women and other organisations in Fiji in the long-term, as in the past, to support renewed, resilient communities.”
