BELFOR Hawaii Aids Fiji Food Drive
BELFOR Hawaii was contacted by one of the leaders of a local church youth group asking for donations for the flood-drenched island nation of Fiji. Recent tropical storms and severe flooding had left thousands of people on the South Pacific island homeless and without basic necessities. Fiji’s Prime Minister toured the affected areas and assessed the situation as three to four times worse than the devastating flood in 2009.
BELFOR Hawaii contributed boxes and packing materials as well as clothing, first aid supplies, toiletries and other nonperishable items. The Fiji Flood Drive was a rousing success; more than 50 boxes of items were packed and shipped to the Islands.
