Cyclone Winston left more than 40 people confirmed dead, with some 14,000 people sheltering in 274 evacuation centres around Fiji.

Hundreds of homes and many schools and vital infrastructure were damaged or destroyed.

After an assessment, we soon had volunteer DARTs deployed in the affected areas: Peter Hazel (UK and Team Leader), Wayne Beaumier (USA), Howard Bradfield (Australia), Steve Lister and Craig Roberts (UK).

They worked closely with local Rotarians and villagers; a vital aspect of our work.

Your donations helped Disaster Aid International respond with;

  • Home Repair Kits to 9 villages
  • SkyHydrant™ water purification systems
  • Sawyer water filters.
  • Family Survival Packs,


All materials for the home repair Kits were purchased locally, with Fijian Rotarians negotiating excellent prices for timber, galvanized iron and tools. 

DART Peter Hazel, in his report from Fiji, says it all:

“We were the go-to NGO for government officials as the only NGO stating its clear intentions, our area of operation and skill sets and providing exactly what is being requested by those in need."

"Working with Rotarians has made all the difference.”
