Prime Minister and Minister for Foreign Affairs Voreqe Bainimarama has received a donation of $5,000 from the Fijian community in Malaysia towards the Prime Minister’s Relief and Rehabilitation Fund.

The cheque donation was presented to the Prime Minister in Bangkok by Fiji’s High Commissioner to Malaysia, Kolinio Takali.

The Prime Minister expressed the Fijian Government’s gratitude to the Fijian diaspora community in Malaysia for assisting with Government’s efforts to rebuild in the aftermath of Cyclone Winston.

“The support we have received from our diaspora communities has been outstanding, and our Fijian community in Malaysia has again shown that the bonds that keep Fijians connected remain strong regardless of the distances that exist between us.

This donation means a great deal to those Fijians affected by the cyclone and will be a big boost for my Government as we work to build Fiji back better and stronger than before,” Mr Bainimarama said.

The Prime Minister was in Bangkok en route to Israel for a three-day visit. He will go on to Lebanon where he will meet with his Lebanese counterpart and visit with Fijian UN Peacekeepers, prior to attending the 2016 United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP22) in Marrakesh, Morocco.
