“I’ve a fracture from an incident with a washtub and I’m not able to do any work to earn a living,” Ms Nisha said.

“My son and daughter-in-law no longer stay with me so I’ve to support myself with social welfare assistance.

“I thank Rotary Nadi for providing this food hamper because it means a lot to us people who are in real need.”

And Nadi Rotary Club secretary Patricia Mallam said such stories were what inspired Rotary Nadi to do what it did.

“Our Rotary club wants to share the joy of the season and make a difference in the lives of those that need the most assistance with Christmas just a week away,” Ms Mallam said.

She said the club also wished to encourage the spirit of goodwill and gratitude.

“We as Fijian people are known for our compassion towards the most vulnerable amongst us, especially during this time of giving,” she said.

“Rotary Nadi realises that not everyone is fortunate to have three meals per day or a roof over their heads.

“Small gestures like this can make a lot of difference in someone’s life so we’re happy that we are able to put a smile on some peoples’ faces.”
