WHAT WE NEED:
The Fiji Institute of Engineers – working closely with the Department of National Planning within the Ministry of Finance – has sent 70 structural assessors in 22 teams to identify the precise requirements of those schools that need assistance. Detailed individual reports are being compiled on each school and a dollar value placed on their needs. Some have been destroyed and will have to be completely rebuilt. Some have been badly damaged and require extensive repairs. In others, classes have resumed but there is still damage to infrastructure and facilities. Working with our planners, you can choose from a master list which school you are best able to assist. You have the option to finance the repair or rebuilding of an entire school or individual structures within these schools. You can also choose whether to finance the intermediate phase of the reconstruction process (to get schools serviceable again) or the long-term phase in which schools will be rebuilt to the required standard to withstand future cyclones.
