Our Mascot – WAFFY

WAFFY is the official mascot for Water Authority of Fiji.

WAFFY stands for Water Authority of Fiji For You. WAFFY was born in September 2012, just 2 years after WAF took over the Water and Sewerage Department.

WAFFY, crafted from a water droplet, in many ways epitomizes the way staff of WAF carry out their role in the supply of water and waste water services to the people of Fiji. Waffy stands by the slogan ”Every drop is Precious”.
