Adrenalin Flood Relief Appeal 2012

April 2012

Fiji experienced incredibly wet weather between 29 March and 3 April 2012 which caused flooding and devastation at a level not seen before in Nadi, in the Western Division on the island of Viti Levu. This being after the flood crisis only a few months earlier, in January.

To many locals in the community, the immediate affects after the flood waters subsided was property damage, lost possessions, lack of water for drinking and cleaning, health and bacteria threats and cut electricity. Initial needs included basic food items, water containers and purifiers, clothing materials, beddings and medical supplies.

Adrenalin has had many enquiries from previous-guests asking how they can help, so we have set up a Flood Relief Appeal to help our local neighbours in what ever small way we can. Read the Media Release here.
