€1.8 m: for victims of cyclone Evan in Fiji and Samoa

The European Union is providing €1.8 million humanitarian assistance to communities in Fiji and Samoa affected by tropical cyclone Evan, in December 2012.
The decision to provide funding for humanitarian assistance came after a team of the EC Humanitarian Office experts visited Fiji and Samoa shortly after the tropical cyclone.
Assistance is required in the sectors of shelter, water and sanitation and particularly vulnerable families are in need of food and basic household items.
Tropical cyclone Evan hit the island nations of Fiji and Samoa between 13 and 17 December 2012. More than a dozen people were reported killed or missing and over 7,600 houses damaged or destroyed. Samoa was particularly badly affected, with the island’s water supply system having been damaged and many food crops destroyed.
Communities in western Fiji had already been hit by two waves of wide-spread flooding in January and March 2012. At the time the EU committed €200,000 to assist flood affected communities.
