Salote Tubuna, 42, outside one of their two small houses in Buka Settlement just outside of Rakiraki. Salote and her family relied on the small vegetable plot beside the house for their income - she sold the crops at the Rakiraki Market a few times a week. The Cyclone has destroyed most of the plot, but she was back at the market just a week later selling the cassava she has left to earn money to pay for her children's schooling.
