Cyclone Evan - Appeal for Funds
Cyclone Evan has struck Samoa causing havoc and destruction.
Emergency Response Kits prepositioned in Apia are being distributed to those most affected and back up supplies are being shipped from Fiji.
Cyclone Evan will hit Tonga and Fiji in the coming days and reportedly is intensyfying.
We have prepositioned ERKs in Fiji and Rotarians and their supporters are on standby.
Rotary is working with Disaster Management Agencies in all three countries and we anticipate that as well as ERKs, food, water and clothing will be needed.
RNZWCS will advance funds to enable these supplies to be purchased and distributed immediately.
We are therefore asking clubs to support us and have launched an immediate appeal. We are also working with the New Zealand Government through MFAT and the NGO Disaster Relief Forum NDRF.
Please refer to our website www.rnzwcs.org for alternate ways to donate or
send cheques to PO Box 20309, Christchurch 8543 or through internet banking 03 1702 0192208 01
We would very much appreciate it if this email was distributed as widely and as soon as possible.
We appreciate many clubs will have suspended meetings for the Christmas/New Year break, but feel confident they will be checking emails.
