More than twelve communities from the coastal areas of Koro and Ra will benefit from the five-year Kana project, that was launched by Save The Children Fiji today.
The project aims to increase the resilience of communities and improve outcomes for children affected by Cyclone Winston through Agriculture and Food Security.
Chief executive, Iris Low-McKenzie, says the project will focus to improve the well-being of the children through increased family income and community disaster risk management.
“Two regions that were most affected will be the focus of this five-year project in Ra and Koro. The impact of this agriculture loss are for several years as high wind, flooding, storm surges impose substantial damage to permanent plantation. Some community members have migrated for alternative sources of income.”
The 3.9 million dollar project is funded by the New Zealand Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade.
