Bank of Baroda – Fiji Operations chief executive, Govindsing Rajput said: “In our different branches on the occasion of Diwali festival, instead of distributing sweets, we thought if we can assist people suffering from cancer.
“The staff members of Bank of Baroda branches around Fiji collected some money and decided to hand-over the cheque to the Fiji Cancer Society.”
He commended the Fiji Cancer Society for its service to people who are suffering from cancer.
“We have been helping Fiji Cancer Society for the past few years and we will continue to support them,” Mr Rajput said.
Society interim administrator, Belinda Chan expressed her gratitude towards the bank for their kind donation.
“We are humbled at the thought that Bank of Baroda management and staff have decided to contribute towards such a worthy cause,” she said.
She said the bank had been supportive in fundraising and assist cancer patients.
This money will assist us in our awareness programme and help us provide transportation to people suffering from cancer all over Fiji,” Ms Chan said.
