A community group from Dubbo has collected 200 kilograms of children and adult clothing bound for Lautoka, Fiji on 9 November aboard Pacific Pearl.
The group of residents organised the shipment to assist those affected by the floods earlier this year.
“Early in the crisis, food was also a priority but now the point has been reached where good quality clothing for children and adults is vitally needed,” Dubbo resident Warren Boyle said.
“We are grateful to P&O Cruises for helping get a pallet load of clothing to Fiji.”
The group has previously visited Lautoka to assist the community with work including; painting part of the Lautoka school and developing and constructing a water collection and purification system to provide the village with clean water.
