Early Chid Education Centre built in Fiji

Our Member Sam Prasad has forwarded the photo below of the Early Child Education Centre built in Fiji. $5,000 which were donated by Lions Club of Brisbane Macgregor went towards the cost of the building.

The funds were raised partly by cash collection by Club Members at Garden City Shopping Centre in the aftermath of Cyclone Winston in March 2016.

As one of the strongest storms ever recorded in the Southern Hemisphere, tropical cyclone (TC) Winston and its 185-mph winds caused widespread devastation across the island nation of Fiji when it made landfall February 19-20. The storm was one of the strongest tropical cyclones to make landfall anywhere on earth since the modern era of global records began in 1970.
