Air Terminal Services (ATS) in Nadi hosted Miss World Fiji Charlene Tafuna’i for tea at its headquarters last Friday.

This event also marked part of Ms Tafuna’i’s repertoire to the Miss World event.

Human resource manager Arieta Cama said ATS handed over $500 as donation towards to her quest for glory, to make Fiji proud, especially the Nadi community.

“As part of her repertoire she is leading her “Beauty with a purpose” project where she is advocating and championing to raise funds for a ventilator machine for the little children at the children’s hospital,” Ms Cama said.

“We have put out our staff bulletin that invites staff to donate a minimum of $5 towards Charlene’s charity chest.”

The company is the first corporate organisation to make the pledge to Charlene’s “Beauty with a Purpose” initiative.

“As ATS celebrates the attainment of the President’s award in the Fiji Business Excellence framework a week ago, we are also cognisant of the fact that as a good corporate citizen we are socially aware and enable our people to be community focused as well,” she said.

Ms Tafuna’i thanked the ATS family for their support since her childhood days because her father, Michael, is an ATS supply officer while her mum Mabel, is a purser with Fiji Airways.

“This is something I hold near and dear to my heart, ever since I was a child I’d watch my dad leave home in his uniform, high visibility vest and all, and I’ve always known that this is the field I wanted to get into,” Ms Tafuna’i said.

“I am truly humbled by all the support. ATS has been a huge part of me and my family’s lives and everyone here has been so incredibly supportive, not only in this event, but throughout the years.”

She said the team at Miss World Fiji was on a mission to fundraise for a life critical system to help raise the level of care.

“We provide to those in most need of it, and your support is going a long way toward our goal. And for that I am so grateful.

“Any organisation is fundamentally powered by the people in it, and you have all shown time and time again, your humanity, and your incredible capacity for good,” she said.

She leaves for London on Wednesday.
