Fiji is heading into a COVID-19 crisis

COVID-19 is spreading in Fiji, and many of the families we work with are heading into a difficult time as the country has been plunged back into lockdown.

Health officials say they are bracing for a ‘tsunami of COVID-19 cases’ after the Indian variant was detected last week. The first cluster was exacerbated after a woman with the virus attended a funeral with 500 people.

The country is now in lockdown as they attempt to stop the spread and the government is trying to roll out contact tracing. 

This all means that many families are struggling. 

Some of the Girls we work with have parents who are daily wage earners, in a country that relies heavily on tourism, their income potential was already at an all-time low.

We have at least 10 families that are already worried about food and don’t know where their next meal will come from. They only need around $100 per family for supplies including rice, vegetables, flour and meat. 

So we’re appealing to you to help! 

Anything you can spare will make a difference and will go to those most in need. 

We hope this will pass quickly and everyone will be back at school and work soon, but for now, we will wait and see how it progresses. 

Every little bit helps. 

Thank you for being a part of this community!
