'SPECIAL 'MANA' OR 'LOLOMA' is pouring in to help the 'Grassroot People' of Fiji from NZ

Hot off the Press!!! Friday 16 Januray 2009
5 minutes ago the Governement via TVNZ, Radio networks, NewstalkZB & Radio NZ are all reporting that NZ Govt. has pledged a further financial 'Stimulus Package' to alleviate the sufferings of Ordinary Fijians, Rotumans, Banabans, Indo-Fijians, Europeans, Pacific Islanders, Chinese, Part Europeans, & others that make up the Fiji population & as a result of the recent National Disaster in Fiji.

Reports from Fiji after days of heavy downpour & more bad weather are aniticipated. Meanwhile thousands of people are homeless & looking for shelter & warmth, food, medical care etc, as well as loosing their homes & belongings & at least 11 people are dead & some still missing.

Prior to this the NZ Governement had initially given an amount of $100,000
via NGOs or Aid Agencies but not directly to the current Military Regime.

As quoted from Radio NZ, "The Foreign Affairs Minister, Murray McCully, says $300,000 will go towards supplying items identified as being urgently needed - in particular water tanks and containers, purification tablets and rehydration salts.
Up to a further $200,000 will be available for organisations with an established presence in affected areas, subject to a proposal process.
The Government says it will consider further requests for assistance as more detailed assessments come in from Fiji.



This is indeed well received by the Fiji Comunnity in Aotearoa & we are deeply humbled by this gesture. As the expert from the MET office in Nadi said earlier in his statement, quote, 'This is the worst of its kind that has ever hit Fiji during his watch at the weather office..."unquote.

Another very relaible source in the Rural area out in Taveuni over the Northern part of Fiji says in her text, quote,


Fijian version

"Keimami sa vakaloloma e Viti. Keimami vakila tiko na cagi kaukauwa kei na uca bi. Sa kerea meda vei nanumi ga ena masu ena gauna dredre oqo. Loloma.

nb..The 'wrath of God' has started up a Clean up Campaign for Fiji!!..unquote

English version:

We are in a very sad state in Fiji. We are experiencing strong winds & heavy downpour from heavy rains. We ask for your prayers during these difficult times. Regards.
