Community supports Fijians
MEDICAL supplies, new linen, clothing, toys, sunglasses and stationary are just a few of the items donated by the community that filled more than 60 boxes for those left without possessions in Fiji after the floods.
Cruise Whitsundays called upon the community to donate unwanted or pre-loved items and were overwhelmed with the response.
The local cruise company have a sister company in Fiji, South Sea Cruises/ Awesome Adventures that supports the Vinaka Fiji Trust.
Vinaka Fiji manager and Whitsunday resident Leigh Efferion is co-ordinating the local donation drive and said the small donations would go a long way in making a difference to those in Fiji.
The boxes were packed up last week, with Whitsunday businessman John Peppin organising free freight for the boxes to be transported to Brisbane, with other arrangements made for them to be flown to the Aid Agency in Fiji.
