Saracens To Support Fiji In Response To State of Disater Extension
It has been just over a month since Cyclone Winston, the worst recorded cyclone in the South Pacific, hit Fiji killing over 40 and destroying the homes and communities of thousands more.
Debris from the cyclone is still a major problem on Fiji’s islands and while communities are beginning to get back on their feet after the disaster there are still tough times ahead of them.
On Monday the Fijian government announced that the state of disaster that has been in place since the cyclone hit will be extended for another month in order for communities to continue to receive supplies and better co-ordination of the relief work taking place.
The home country of Saracens number 8 Samu Vunisa, Fiji is a country close to the heart of the rugby community and to Saracens. In light of this, and the recent extension of the state of disaster, Saracens, with the help of the New Zealand Salvation Army, will be donating 20% of all Wembley ticket sales to the relief fund over this Easter weekend and also collecting for the cause at the game at Allianz Park this weekend.
