Kramer Ausenco is supporting the emergency response to Tropical Cyclone Winston that hit Fiji at the end of February.
Kramer Ausenco Fiji Office Manager, Shane Harris, who is also the president of a Rotary Club in Suva, responded to a request for all Rotary Clubs to donate vehicles and much needed Rotary Emergency Response Kits, clothes and food parcels, to Tailevu North (Dawasamu Tikina), where villages were worst hit and only accessible by four wheel drives.
Mr. Harris donated KA Fiji’s four wheel drive with Sakiusa Matai, Construction/CAD Manager, as the driver to assist with the delivery of supplies to Nasinu, Silana, Nataleira and Driti villages.
The villages have a combined population of about 813 people that were, until recently, housed in 176 structures. Cyclone Winston completely destroyed close to 130 of these homes, while the remaining structures sustained medium to heavy damages.
“Fortunately there were no casualties. Despite their losses, the people, who are currently residing in either village schools or halls, put on brave smiles and are working together to pick up the pieces and rebuild their lives,” Mr. Harris said.
Kramer Ausenco Chief Executive Officer, Frank Kramer, said the Company’s thoughts and prayers are with the people of Fiji at this time, and KA would continue to help wherever it could.
The Group first opened office in Fiji on 4 May 1998 as Kinhill Kramer (Fiji) Limited, later became Kramer (Fiji) Limited, and now operates as Kramer Ausenco (Fiji) Limited.
