The Solomon Islands High Commission Office in Suva, Fiji has expressed gratitude for the support the Office recently received from Fiji-based organisations and individuals, and the Solomon Islands community in Suva in response to a flood appeal launched in Suva last month.
In a statement, High Commissioner Patterson Oti said the assistance rendered was much needed support to help the people affected to start over and to support the rehabilitation process that the government is currently undertaking.
Donated items collected during the appeal have already been packed and shipped to Honiara for onward distribution to victims by the Solomon Islands Red Cross.
Meanwhile, the High Commission Office and the Solomon Islands student associations in Suva have organised a second fundraising program, with the aid of popular Solomon Islands Music group, DMP.
The youth band has been scheduled to put on a series of live performances in Suva this week.
Mr Oti said proceeds from the fundraising effort will be donated to an identified charitable organisation in Fiji to acknowledge the support that Fiji rendered to Solomon Islands during its difficult moment.
Part of the proceeds will also be donated towards the ongoing recovery efforts in Solomon Islands.
