On the 20 and 21 February, Tropical Cyclone Winston considered one of the most severe cyclones ever to hit the South Pacific, struck Fiji. While the full scale of the disaster is still unfolding, entire villages have been destroyed and over 170,000 women could have been affected.  

As two out of three women in Fiji already experience violence, the protection of women and children and the prevention of sexual and gender based violence are important priorities as well as ensuring the equal participation of women in the humanitarian assistance agenda. 

Your help is urgently needed to ensure women’s protection from gender based violence and put women’s leadership at the centre of the emergency response. Please donate today.

Where will my money go?  


 
On what programs?    
 
ActionAid Australia is working with our local partner, FemLINK PACIFIC in Fiji to promote a gender inclusive humanitarian response to Cyclone Winston.  This is to ensure that we have input and feedback from women, particularly from the affected communities and remote islands, to ensure that their needs are included in the nationwide humanitarian response.
 
With your support, ActionAid with its local partner are collaborating to ensure that:
  • local women’s rights organisations are resourced in the immediate response effort and longer term recovery
  • that community media-based information and communication systems are strengthened
  • these are vital in ensuring accountability to affected communities and access to information on the response effort

Note: A maximum of 10% of your donation will be used to offset fundraising and administration costs. In the event that the funds raised through this emergency appeal exceed the amount required to meet the immediate and long term needs of the people affected, ActionAid Australia will direct excess donations to our Women’s Rights in Emergencies Fund to ensure we are able to support women to take leadership roles in future disaster response and resiliency efforts.
