FIJI - BEAUTY WITH A PURPOSE

Severe Tropical Cyclone Winston was the strongest tropical cyclone to make landfall in Fiji in recorded history. The storm passed directly over Vanua Balavu, the third largest island in Fiji’s Lau archipelago where a national record wind gust of 306 km per hour was observed.

44 people were killed when the cyclone hit Fiji at category 5 intensity on February 20th.

Qelekuru Village, which is located in the province of Tailevu in the eastern part of Fiji, was one of the many villages that was badly affected by Cyclone Winston. In this village, a mother lost her precious life during the height of the cyclone while trying to make her way to safety, leaving behind her loved ones. After hearing of this story, the Miss World Fiji team visited the village and decided to assist them as part of Miss World’s Beauty with a Purpose project.

Qelekuru village is made up of 78 families. Majority of the families live in tents and make shift homes after most homes were destroyed during cyclone Winston. The village once had 98 homes and a sea wall which was badly damaged during the cyclone.

Fiji’s Beauty with a Purpose project is to rebuild the sea wall in the village to prevent further flooding during high tides.
