I will have to sort out the boyfriend of yours... fancy not coming with you at Easter! I need you to network far and wide we already have a facebook page set up by one of my lovely customers in Germany. Tey this link:!/group.php?gid=372108010698&ref=nf
I'm new to FB so you will probably know more how to grow the group.
I just started on Twitter for work about 1-2 day before disaster started and have been twittering the whole saga via there. Please try and join this one as well and lets try and get your groups linked as well:

Saw a tweeter from Humanity Habitat and there call for volunteers to help in Fiji. Trying to get them to also look at RABI
As you know Akka we have major problems within Fiji system as minority. Paulo is already get frustrated and he needs all the help we can send directly to him. He is so overwhelmed at the moment. Hey your organisation won't send you over to help him in Suva office? You are just what he needs there at the moment. See if they will let you help out for a couple of weeks.... he really needs help and you would be great on coordinating everything. Just an idea!
Love you naughty Auntyxxxx

we may as well link it all through the one site and

Mauri Akka hows your all important love life!!! ha ha You know your aunty! Still haven't heard from Ken but Paulo is now in Suva to co-ordinate things. Ken should contact us via a satellite phone we hired for him. Paulo is pretty overwhelmed with the scale of disaster caused by Tomas and now our major focus is food and medical supplies. We had already set up a paypal fund account (see DONATE button link on front page on right hand side). Paulo will set up official bank account for Suva end. Ken is already carrying a spare $1,000 of cash donations to either hand out to the most needy or purchase of food for them over there Will know more once I hear from him. Paulo thinks he is already on Rabi but I'm sure I would have heard from him if he did. He is trying to save the batteries on the satellite phone for Rabi leg because we were worried about trying to recharge batteries during current crisis.

What I would like to ask you Akka is to network with all our Kiribati Banabans and maybe your govt departments to rally direct support for Rabi community. Paulo's direct mobile phone number is there to hand out to the necessary connections in Kiribati you have. Paulo will keep me informed via email and I will keep posting here on BV. Could you please ask Mum to rally the NZ mob as we haven't heard from any of them yet and Paulo needs them all to rally behind the community back home.
Paulo is currently uploading more photos for us at the moment and Cr. Tateau will arrive on Rabi Monday with a more comprehensive assessment report.
Paulo is very concerned that the official DISMAC report is very watered down and not an accurate reflection of the true situation on the ground.
So will publish this one as soon as we get it.
I thinks thats all for the moment and we will make sure that we do something for Easter. So please come as we will arrange things as soon as this drama is over. Ken is booked to fly back sunday but will depend on what he needs to do back home to help. LOL
