Dominion Wire and Cables Limited yesterday handed $50,000 to the Prime Minister’s Relief and Rehabilitation Fund to support those affected by Cyclone Winston.

Amit Solanki, the company’s general manager operations, said businesshouses needed to come forth and assist the people in need.

“It is time to act rather than talk and we need to give back to those communities that need our assistance,” Mr Solanki said.

Attorney-General Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum, while receiving the cheque, said it was very important for businesshouses to come on board.

He urged businesses not to increase prices of food items and other necessities unreasonably and benefiting from the terrible situation individuals were facing.

“It is very important that we as Fijians all contribute towards the Prime Minister’s Relief Fund, in particular businesshouses; we can also contribute in various other relief efforts,” Mr Sayed-Khaiyum said.

“The reality is that we also need to be very generous at this point in time and that generosity obviously comes not just by way of funding but also through consoling our fellow Fijians.

“There are some supermarkets who have put up their prices unreasonably and they have been referred to the Commerce Commission but all of this can be avoided if businesshouses concerned actually stopped being so greedy and not take advantage of the unfortunate circumstances that many people are facing,” he said.

“I would like to urge all businesshouses, as this is the time they can come on board, and the time not to have unreasonable margins so people are able to access materials that they need quickly and at affordable prices.”
