Help from Australia

The Australian government have allocated $5 million to help Fiji - sending planes and helicopters quickly, and many aid organisations have also started helping with Shelter Boxes, etc.  Tragedy can bring out a lot of human kindness towards neighbours.   (story from Fiji Village)
