Rotary Club of Subiaco provides Shelter Boxes each year to stand ready to assist in a time of international disaster such as the Fiji cyclone.
Fiji's National Disaster Management Office reports that 51,000 people are still in shelters with many others staying with relatives. Cyclone Winston, the worst storm recorded in the southern hemisphere, left 42 dead. The Category 5 storm has left many without water and it could be weeks before electricity is restored in many areas. Australia has sent HMAS Canberra, carrying three helicopters and 60 tonnes of supplies including water purification equipment and medicines.
