The little and remote village in the Vitilevu Highlands called Nagatagata, formerly quite traditional with several of their thatched houses with cone-shaped roofs, unique to the Highlands. That all ended with Cyclone Winston, which destroyed the majority of the buildings and damaged what were left. The people have been suffering, and for reasons that can only be speculated on, have received no government assistance even though coastal villages have received significant help. The only aid they have received is some tents from the Chinese government, some of which have been in turn destroyed by subsequent windstorms. The position of these poor folk is dire. If you feel able to contribute anything toward their rebuilding, from $1 up, it would be appreciated. Above all, if you could spread the word about this appeal to others who might be willing to help, and put it on your Facebook pages etc., that would be an enormous help. In Western terms, they are hoping to raise a tiny amount US$13,500 but to them, that would be the difference between having weatherproof homes, and living rough. The nights in the highlands can get mighty cold and wet, and as winter approaches, they hope to rebuild before it truly sets in.
