Close to 180 people affected by the recent floods within Nadi were given food packs from the Ahmadhiya Muslim Youth Group on Tuesday.

Group president Munauwar Khan said they also supplied food packs to Government officials and fire officers who were on the ground.

He said the 180 flood victims were at the evacuation centre based at Saint Andrews Primary School.

“The houses and belongings of these people were all submerged in floodwaters and they had no facilities to cook food,’’ Mr Khan said.

“Food packs were also distributed to the servicemen who were working tirelessly to bring back normalcy after the floods.

“These included personnel from the Royal Fiji Military Forces, Fiji Police Force, National Fire Authority and as well as workers and cleaners from the Nadi Town Council.”

The Ahmadhiya Muslim community Fiji, he said was requesting food and clothing supplies for the affected flood victims in various regions of the country.

Mr Khan said: “The Ahmadiyya Muslim community firmly believes in its motto: “Love for All Hatred for None”.

“This relief effort was done based on our motto as it demands us as Ahmadi Muslims to help out our fellow Fijian brothers and sisters in need.

“We will endeavor and try our best to help out the people in need whenever we face these circumstances,” Mr Khan added.
