Think Pacific are hard at work at the moment in the hot Fijian sunshine, working alongside the people of Yanuca as we help this tiny village located off the coast of Moturiki Island, to recover from damage caused by TC Winston in February.

Yanuca, was one of the worst places affected by Cyclone Winston, with almost all buildings in the village damaged or destroyed and Think Pacific are funding the rebuilding of a community centre for the village.  This will provide a safe, clean and secure place for children and families to live, whilst the longer process of rebuilding individual homes continues and offer a long term facility the whole community can be proud of.

In the long term, community centres in Fiji are extremely important buildings, both culturally and practically. They are used by all members of the village, from hosting meetings, ceremonies and cultural events and church services to educational programmes for children and adults, and a central facility the whole community can utilize and enjoy.

Our volunteers and staff will be based on Moturiki for the next month, working away with Yanuca villagers,  as we continue to achieve this project together.
