The Australian government is providing $85,000 to the Fiji Red Cross Society to distribute hygiene and sanitary supplies to those hardest hit by TC Keni.

The support comes after Fiji’s request for assistance following the devastation caused by the Category three storm.

TC Keni compounded the devastation caused by TC Josie last week, which caused significant flooding, particularly in the western and the northern divisions.

Australia provided up to $50,000 to the Fijian Government in support of relief efforts in response to TC Josie.

The Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade says it has not received any requests for consular assistance from Australian citizens.

It says Australia stands ready to provide further assistance if required.
