Naigani Village, Batiki, was completely destroyed in 2016 by Cyclone Winston, the strongest tropical cyclone in the Southern Hemisphere on record. The people of Naigani lost their homes and for months had to live in tents before they were able to rebuild their village.

I adore the mise-en-scène of this Indofijian home. This is the house of Bobby Nana (Grandpa Bobby). My mother spent her school holidays here. Bobby Nana left school and devoted his life to protecting nature and became a self-taught conservationist. The home is on the Nabogiono Farm which is 40 hectares of virgin rainforest & marine reserve with many native fruits, birds and medicinal plants. He preserves traditional knowledge, educates the local youth on sustainability and prevents further land development so there is no disturbance in the natural balance. The farm does not yet have funds to become economically viable and unfortunately most of it was destroyed by Cyclone Winston.

One toy I couldn’t do without? My @orukayak It’s a quick and easy way to hop off the “mothership” and go explore and stretch those sealegs. Here we’re docked up at what’s left of the docks of Namena Dive Resort which was destroyed 3 years ago in cyclone Winston.

CYCLONE WINSTON: Imagine having a luxury resort all to yourself. Except it’s really what’s left of it it after it was destroyed by cyclone Winston 3 years ago. It was quite sad to see the impact Winston had on this resort and then to think of the impact it had on the region. All the locals refer to it by the name Winston the same way San Franciscans refer to #karlthefog - There were two people living there in charge of the reconstruction who described what it was like running from one Bure to the other for cover depending on where the wind was coming from and hiding under the houses. Two of the six houses survived, but barely. I said it the other day, it’s really shocking to hear the hardships Fijians go through to survive on these islands. None of that usually makes it to Instagram though...

I've really fallen for the warmth and genuineness of Fijian people over the years. My time with these kids was pretty special! Their kindy was still being held in a UNICEF tent, many months after Fiji had been severely hit by Tropical Cyclone Winston. This storm was the most intense on reccord with 280km/h winds in this area. Despite rebuilding still going on 10 months after, these little kids were just so full of love and energy 💙

@oxfaminternational @oxfamaustralia Yesterday the district officer and coordinator of all humanitarian help here in Taveuni mentioned how happy he was with your work and response to the emergency following Cyclone Winston. He said: "Some organisations I have been in touch with talk a lot but don't do much... Oxfam talks little and do a lot." He ended his statement with one of his amazing wholehearted laughs, as all Fijians do, no matter what! 🙌🏾

Officially hurricane season yah! 😑 just reminded me of an article I wrote for the Scuba news UK. A cyclone tale from above & below the waves. I survived a cat 5 in the Fiji islands, Cyclone Winston. The strongest cyclone in the history of the southern hemishere which devastasted the area of Fiji which I lived. Others were not so lucky. Something I wish never to experience again. Link to the article is in my bio if you would like to read it. Hoping everyone stays safe this season. 💨💨💨🤕😭

Diane and Yokimi’s story
.
Baby Yokimi was just three months old when Cyclone Winston hit. The storm, the worst ever recorded in the southern hemisphere, brought massive destruction to the islands of Fiji. Torrential rain, wind speeds of 200 mph and 40ft waves obliterated up to 90% of structures and left an estimated 120,000 people without shelter. Yokimi, along with her mother Diane, live in Tokou on the island of Ovalau, which suffered widespread damage as a result of Cyclone Winston. When our response teams reached Ovalau, they found massive trees on their sides, stripped clean of leaves and branches, while broken belongings lay stranded in the rubble. With your support our ShelterBox teams were able to provide Diane and her family with a ShelterBox. The box not only contains a tent that the family will be able to stay in until they start rebuilding their home, but all of the essential items needed to help them return to normal life such as kitchen utensils, solar lights and a water filter. For Diane and her family, a ShelterBox means relief. She said: ‘I’m so happy to have a tent – to have a safe place of our own to sleep.’

Our work keeps families and communities together, increasing feelings of stability and togetherness during a time of unprecedented global conflict and displacement.
We can’t give back what was lost, but we can provide the tools for families and communities to start their own recovery, promoting stability in the face of such huge trauma. #NoFamilyWithoutShelter
