Surviving the Cyclone at 98

Meet 98 year old Ram Dumari, she survived cyclone Yasa by sheltering under her bed alongside her 65-year old son and daughter in law after their roof was blown off. They spent four long hours laying on the wet, cold floor waiting for the worst of the storm to pass.

Ram lives in a farming community, where people depend on agriculture for their food and income. Almost all farms were destroyed by the strong wind and flooding.

Our ADRA Fiji team have been on the ground since day one and worked through the Christmas and New Year season to provide help and hope to people like Ram. After the disaster, ADRA remains in communities to help long-term recovery.

Thank you for your continued prayers and support.
