Twenty-year-old Merelisita Koro volunteered with the Fiji Red Cross following the devastation caused by Tropical Cyclone Winston last year.
“I’m very happy that I’m helping people. It’s better for you to help people than to sit at home and do nothing. Just because your family’s safe doesn’t mean you can relax.
“You think, whoa, it’s a hard job but you’re helping people who need it and you always smile.”
“It has changed me. This was my first time being a volunteer. I have met a lot of people. I have learnt a lot too.”
