Life in Fiji is getting back to normal
More than 6 months have passed since Cyclone Winston wiped out parts of Fiji. It was the most powerful cyclone ever to make landfall in the country, affecting approximately 350,000 people, 120,000 of which were children.
But in the aftermath of disaster, the resilience of the Fijian people shone through.
And today, children are smiling again as they're back in school learning and playing, while families in affected areas are getting on with their lives. UNICEF is continuing its recovery work to aid those worst affected.
Thanks to the generous support of our donors, UNICEF was prepared and able to respond quickly and continue our emergency response over the past 6 months.
