Krishna, 61 of Field 28, Rarawai, Ba, thanked the National Farmers Union Ba branch for providing financial support for him and his family after their eight-bedroom house that was damaged in a fire three months ago.

The Ba National Farmers Union donated $300 to the Krishna family.

“This kind gesture from the union is indeed a great help,” Mr Krishna said.

“This money will be used to buy building materials for the house that we have started reconstructing.”

President for National Farmers Union Ba Branch Jain Kumar said that union had been helping people mainly affected by fire.

“We financially support families who lose everything in house fires which help them to some extent,” Mr Kumar said.

“We also help students at the start of the school year every year with donations of school books, bags and other accessories totalling to $100 per pack.

“This year we have helped three fire victims and will be helping 60 school students.

“We will continue to serve our communities and do whatever we can to serve our people.”
