On Saturday February 20th 2016 the category 5 tropical cyclone Winston made landfall in Fiji. Winston would turn out to be one of the most powerful cyclones in recorded history, with winds gusting to 320 km/h.

Fiji is a Pacific nation of over 100 inhabited islands, and as news started to filter in from these remote locations, the death toll and reports of damage slowly rose. It became apparent that the north western corner of the island of Viti Levu was severely affected. This populated area includes the major towns of Nadi, Lautoka, Ba and Rakiraki.

Motivation Australia have been working in Fiji since 2012. Over the next few months our work with the Fiji Spinal Injuries Association (SIA) to improve wheelchair and walking aid service provision, needs to reflect the priorities of the Fijians caught in this humanitarian crisis. We will be supporting the SIA to plan their response to the emergency.

All funds raised through this appeal will be donated to the SIA. The SIA will use these funds to: follow-up known wheelchair users to check they're safe and mobile; and meet the need for mobility devices for people who have sustained injuries during the cyclone.

All donations (from Australian donors contributing over $2.00) are tax deductible and 100% of funds received will be used to support the work of the SIA post Cyclone Winston. Motivation Australia administration and accountability costs are being funded separately by Motivation Australia. Thank you for your support!

Our target is AUD3,000. Any funds donated in excess of that amount will be used to further support our partners in Fiji.
