A high school teacher in Suva intended to trade her eight-month-old baby’s stroller to assist lactating mothers who were in isolation.

Sanimere Lacanivalu intended to do this, so she could provide 25 serves of soup for mothers at the isolation centre at the Patel Samaj Hall in Suva.

Mrs Lacanivalu had posted her request on the Barter for Better Fiji Facebook page after she received a message from one of the mothers in isolation requesting a serve soup.

The 29-year-old also said, she identified some of those mothers through her own mother, who was a COVID-19 positive patient at the same isolation centre.

She added her mother had been in one of the tents and they realised the need to help in supplementing their meals with some nutritional packs.

The mother of two said, two women had contacted her willing to provide 25 packs of soup without any trade.

“Heaven opened doors and soup was delivered to the mothers.

“I am grateful to those that have pitched in to make this happen.

“A big thank you to Vyke Tungi and Caroline Aull for their donation.”

She added. the women were grateful for the support given to them.
