Secretary General Greg Urwin says amounts of 11-and-a-half thousand US dollars will be provided to assist with relief efforts, following recent damage from Typhoon Sudel in Yap and the flash floods in Fiji.
The Secretariat also has offered to provide technical assistance similar to the relief that was extended in January to Niue and Samoa following Cyclone Heta, and to Vanuatu in February in the wake of Cyclone Ivy.
The Regional Disaster Relief Fund was established in 1975 by Forum Island Countries.
