Vinaka Fiji Yasawa Trust Foundation

Carmen is heading off to Fiji !!

While she is in Fiji she will be visiting the Yasawa Islands.

With the money collected today at Friday Wine Down, Carmen will purchase pencils, papers and supplies for the children on the Yasawa Islands.
Making a difference to the lives of local Yasawa villagers

Fiji's Yasawa Islands are home to 27 villages living below world standards of health and poverty. The Vinaka Fiji Trust was set up to give something back to the villagers and to say “thank you (vinaka), for welcoming us into your islands.”
Through fundraising and volunteering, Vinaka Fiji aims to improve the provision of basic needs and amenities, often taken for granted in modern society, yet missing from village life in the Yasawas.
