Fiji Cyclone Appeal

Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullaahi wa barakaatuh.

Fiji Islands was hit by one of the world’s biggest and fiercest cyclone last week. The death toll has climbed up to 42 and close to 20,00 people are in evacuation centres. Many people have been left homeless and 67 schools have been destroyed or severely damaged. There is an urgent need for food, clean water, clothes and medical supplies.
