Cyclone Winston – the strongest cyclone to ever hit the southern hemisphere – struck Fiji as a Category 5 on February 20, 2016.  Cyclone Winston inflicted extensive damage on many islands and killed 44 people.  Nearly 25,000 homes were damaged or destroyed and approximately 350,000 people—roughly 40 percent of Fiji’s population—were significantly impacted by the storm.

Tara and the team at Kauai Seariders are donating the Sea Rider profits this week –  March 14-21, 2016 to the people of Fiji affected by cyclone Winston.   Our hope is to be able to raise enough funds, through our efforts and those of our community, to help the people of Fiji eat, drink clean water and obtain temporary shelter as soon as possible.  The photo shows what was once the shelter of 23 Fijians on the island of Tavenui.

“Having gone through 2 hurricanes on the island of Kaua’i in my lifetime, I understand the struggle and aftermath of a natural disaster. But,we were amazingly blessed that we had FEMA, Red Cross, Salvation Army and lots of help. These folks aren’t on the radar, there is no economic or political gain and there has virtually been no media coverage of this disaster. ”
