CHCH help for FIJI
YEHA! WELL DONE CHCH HELPERS AND THOSE AFAR, THE EMERGENCY CONTAINER #1 IS OFF
Bula Chch Helpers and those afar!
Last moments to get those donations into the container today. Please note 12pm is cut off today for drop offs at '8 Pateke Drive Bromley'. We are sorry we haven't been able to keep up with answering your questions here (been doing things in the reality world lol).
Update on second and or more containers, is still undergoing investigation and planning, Logistically it is difficult not only here in NZ but extremely so on the Fiji side, as you can all appreciate -most Redcross humanitarians are being used across the needed emergency fields.
So please hold fire on any more donations and until we announce more on this page. We meet with the Mayor today so hopefully this will open more paths too. Those with building products please keep them in mind, as the next planed container/s are aimed at the rebuild.
Watch this space:)
Vinaka Vaka Levu!

Delivering to VIDEO EZY LINCOLN, who has gone hands in hands with the wider FIJI community and organised a few containers to be filled up with emergency items to be sent to FIJI during this very difficult time since the worst hurricane in the southern hemisphere. We are asking the public if items such as " blankets, carpentry tools, water, canned food , rope, fixings/screws nails/ roof tech screws etc, water purifiyer gear, shoes and any other items which could be used or consumed. Your help in providing any such items will be highly appreciated. We are targeting to have a few containers sent to FIJI within the week with the transportation kindly sponsored by NEW ZEALAND EXPRESS.
Also Redcross are a good place to donate monetary donations.
Jah bless fellow Chch homies

Thanks & Vinaka Vakalevu to you all, the cause has made it to the news, so hopefully it will get bigger responses.
