Recent flooding has devastated the island of Fiji. Over 9,000 people are displaced after having homes and infrastructure destroyed. Crops have been decimated, straining the food supply. Because climate is temperate and food is typically plentiful, there is a lack of food storage. Even though foreign governments are offering aid, there is always a delay for it to reach those most in need. Even more, because expected harvests will not come, food scarcity will drag on. This will raise the cost of food, having a crushing effect on the country's poor.
