The round-the-clock curfew was lifted at 5:30 am this morning (Monday). We are now making plans to travel as much as the roads allow to further assess the after-effects of Cyclone Winston and appropriately respond to needs in those communities where we are at work. Today we are hoping to inspect The Salvation Army’s work at Rawai and Nasinu.
We have not yet been able to make contact with our centres in Savusavu or Taveuni and therefore have no idea as to the scope of the situation in those locations. The Ba Corps and officer quarters were badly flooded, with the quarters perhaps beyond repair.
Yesterday, Captain Sevanaia Wawa held a church service at Rawai consisting almost entirely of those who had sought shelter there from The Salvation Army.
Communication is a problem in many parts of Fiji. Power is out across much of the country, so computer and phone batteries are running low. Transport to and from parts of the country is also very difficult.
Thank you for your ongoing prayers for Fiji, which are greatly appreciated. We are very proud of our people here and their service to others, despite the disruption to their own lives.
