The celebrations of Eid is about strengthening bonds, appreciating varied perspectives and celebrating unity in diversity.

It is an opportunity for us to reflect on our lives and the changes we can bring about to become better individuals, its calls for simple changes in our lives, the way we see ourselves and nurture the values of care and compassion for others.

The celebration of Eid cultivates peace among everyone to work in unity for a universal prosperity.

We are certainly privileged to live in a country such as ours, we have so much to celebrate.

Given the cultural diversity, there a lot of opportunities to learn from each other and strengthen unity and broaden our knowledge and appreciate each other’s cultures that allows us to have a very peaceful coexistence amongst our societies.

Regardless of whichever culture we belong to, we need each other and we need be proud of that and that is the very Fiji this Government is trying to create, One Fiji One people.

Let this Eid be a season for us to move forward in love and unity, allowing the spirit of peace and harmony into our lives.

Let’s all work together to advocate unity among each other and continue to nurture the values of respect, gratitude and compassion in our daily lives.

As Fijians we are known to be resilient and as we go along we see people preparing for this festival, it shows the strength that our people have to overcome challenges that we come across in our lives.

As we try to rebuild the lives after the havoc caused by TC Winston, I would humbly like to appeal to those of us who have enough to go out of our way to see how we can make a positive difference in the lives of those children and families who have lost everything in the natural disaster.

As we celebrate Eid may we be reminded of the many homes and hearts that we can reachout to by providing a helping hand to those that genuinely need our assistance.

This is a special to reachout and make a positive difference, to bring smile on the faces of those families who may be still rebuilding their lives.

On this special occasion of Eid, the key message is for all to unite and embrace the multiculturalism and commit to build a better, unified nation and stronger Fiji.

I wish you all a very happy and prosperous Eid.
