Australia will provide $100,000 in assistance to Fiji for the adverse consequences of the impact of Cyclone Mick, which caused significant damage to Fiji’s main island, Viti Levu, on 14 December, Minister for Foreign Affairs, Stephen Smith announced this morning. "This funding will provide for the immediate distribution and replenishment of relief and sanitation supplies and to help conduct damage assessments," he said in a statement. The cyclone caused heavy rainfall, strong winds and some flooding. Assistance will also be provided through UNICEF, the Fiji Red Cross Society and Fiji’s National Disaster Management Office. Smith said the funding is a "further demonstration of Australia’s friendship and commitment to the people of Fiji."
