In the aftermath of Cyclone Evan the generous donations to the GVI Cyclone Evan Appeal were implemented through a system of village assessments. The funds were used to repair damaged water infrastructure, provide much needed food aid to villages where years worth of crops had been lost, initiate agriculture rehabilitation projects, and provide funding for basic infrastructure repairs. Now, five months since the December cyclone, the communities of the Northern Yasawas have achieved much more stability and have, in most areas, recovered from the worst of the affects of the disaster. Though many villages are still damaged and much of the environment will be affected for years to come, many of the basic needs of the villages have been met through the ongoing process of recovery.
GVI would like to thank all the willing donors that enabled our program of volunteer powered disaster relief for the communities of the Northern Yasawas. GVI's Charitable Trust Funded operations were acknowledged by both the national DISMAC (Fiji disaster management) operations, The local Provincial Council, and Fiji Red Cross.
