Brisvaani Aid Foundation to assist victims of Cyclone Winston

cyclone winston

The Brisvaani Aid Foundation is a charitable organisation which acts on behalf of the community to raise funds and help the needy, locally and internationally. Radio Brisvaani is its main media source through which the community is informed about various projects where aid funds are channelled. BAF does not collect materials (clothing, food, etc.) simply because of complexities associated with storage, costs of transportation, customs/quarantine clearances in receiving countries. Instead, BAF collects funds and a group of self-financed volunteers (mostly BAF management team members) take the funds with them and liaise with the Government authorities to channel assistance to most needy people.

In previous cases of disaster relief in Fiji, the Fijian Government had provided physical support via army personnel and military transport (trucks) to reach areas that are unreachable by common public transport systems due to damages in local infrastructures (broken bridges, washed roads etc) during such times. Close connection of BAF’s aid network with local supply agencies (major store chains) and the Government’s disaster relief personnel, ensures that the assistance is rendered to the needy in shortest possible time without having to deal with delays in bureaucratic complexities.

BAF’s current project is providing assistance to the victims of Cyclone Winston that has left a trail of devastation in Fiji. People wishing to donate funds can do so by making direct deposits to Westpac bank bsb # 034-033 account # 157966. Cheques can be posted to Brisvaani Aid Foundation, PO Box 343, Mount Ommaney, Qld 4074. Please ensure that your essential details are included in any direct deposits or otherwise so your receipts are forwarded to you without complications or delays.
