Thursday, February 2, 2012


“The Fijian communities in New Zealand, Fiji and internationally are vigorously rallying for public appeals as a result of the recent devastating flood in the Western Division of Viti Levu, the second largest island in the archipelago of Fiji,said Alton Shameem JP, the New Zealander-Fijian Community, Multi-Cultural, Ethnic, National and International Leader, Founder, Chairman and President of the Fiji Club New Zealand (FCNZ), Fiji On The Move (FOM), All Ethnic Congress (AEC), Fiji Council New Zealand (FCoNZ), Leadership Council New Zealand (LCNZ), Young Executive Club (YEC), Business Council New Zealand (BCNZ), New Zealand Association of Certified Public Accountants (NZACPA), Social Entrepreneurs Council (SEC), Economic Council New Zealand (ECNZ) and the New Zealand Association of Certified Public Accountants (NZACPA) www.nzacpa.org.nz.

“The most affected areas are Nadi, Ba, Rakiraki and Lautoka the main commercial and populous towns and cities where over 1,400 people have been rendered destitute and are badly in need of clothes, food, medicine and shelter. Over 6 people have sadly died and people are now prone to typhoid and other waterborne diseases.

This destructive flood was more lethal than the one our fellow Fijians endured and suffered in 2009. They lost their precious homes, farms, stock, livelihood, and their businesses,” says Alton Shameem.

“Please donate generously to Red Cross in Fiji and New Zealand www.redcross.com.fj, www.redcross.org.nz respectively or to your favorite charities and state that it is for 2012 Fiji Western Division flood relief assistance,” pleaded Alton Shameem JP, the New Zealander-Indigenous Fijian Community, Multi-Cultural, Ethnic, National and International Leader, Founder, Chairman and President of the Fiji Club New Zealand (FCNZ), Fiji On The Move (FOM), All Ethnic Congress (AEC), Fiji Council New Zealand (FCoNZ), Leadership Council New Zealand (LCNZ), Young Executive Club (YEC), Business Council New Zealand (BCNZ), New Zealand Association of Certified Public Accountants (NZACPA), Social Entrepreneurs Council (SEC), Economic Council New Zealand (ECNZ) and the New Zealand Association of Certified Public Accountants (NZACPA).
