"Thank you for your kind consideration to offer help to those who suffer in Ha'apai groups due to damages caused by Cyclone Ian on the 11th January 2014.
Your help will be very much appreciated that. One of my aunties, a widow live there with her children and grandchildren. I managed to talk to them by phone yesterday and it is so obvious that the damages done by the cyclone is felt by everyone in those islands. Their house was partly damaged by the cyclone and more than 70% of the family houses and public building in the islands were destroyed. Water system, food and shelter is their main needy now with lots of tents up to one thousand need to be distributed and installed to families to use for the time being.
I volunteer to go down if the donors are willing to help and to make sure that the donation is wisely distributed to those who are most in need of our help at this time.
Once again thank you and God bless.
