The Fiji Muslim League have been assisting various school students with food and school needs.

League president Hafiz Khan said the assistance was specifically provided to the children who were affected by COVID-19 and TC Harold.

“During these hard times, it is understandable that most parents have been laid off and we want to relieve the burden of the families who send their children to school by supplying them with stationary, food and other school needs,” he said.

Mr Khan said the teachers, among these schools, would do assessments on how many students needed assistance.

“We were planning to assist 22 Muslim school students in Fiji and this was entirely funded by the Fiji Muslim League,” he said.

Sanatan Dharm Pratinidhi Sabha of Fiji is also planning on assisting schools with meals. These will be for schools that come under Sanatan Dharm.

Its president Sarju Prasad said this assistance would be for those children whose parents have lost their jobs or cannot financially support their children.

“The teachers will be giving us the assessment results on how many children need meal assistance,” he said.

He said the Sanatan School Management would also be provided with the means to start the food donation.

“We have not started with this plan yet, but once the management board is ready, we will initiate with the meal donations,” Mr Prasad said.
