It was a happy day for 12 families who received special Diwali hampers on Wednesday from the Poor Relief Society.
This was additional to the monthly rations they usually receive from the society.
The society’s president, Sabita Gandhi, said the packages contained essential items for Diwali celebrations.
“The funds were raised by the society through donations from businesshouses, members of society, friends, families, and individuals both local and from overseas,” Ms Gandhi said.
She said that the normal monthly rations were distributed by the society on the first day of each month from R.B. Patel Centrepoint.
“The ration distribution has continued to date since the inception of the society in 1956 including the special Diwali hampers,” Ms Gandhi said.
She said this year was again a success.
“This year again the distribution went well and I am grateful for the special Diwali hampers donated by the members of the society.
“The recipients were very happy that this year’s Diwali celebration is going to be a happy one after receiving the assistance from PRS,” Ms Gandhi said.
She wished the people of Fiji a happy Diwali.
