The Sanatan Dharm Pratinidhi Sabha Fiji yesterday invited different faiths to pray for those suffering from the devastating bushfires in Australia.

At least 14 different organisations took part in the prayer vigil yesterday, including Reverend James Bhagwan who was representing the Pacific Conference of Churches, which is the regional peak ecumenical body.

The prayer vigil was held at the Sanatan Shiv Temple Hall in Rewa Street, Samabula. Acting national secretary Vigyan Sharma said the main purpose of organising the prayer vigil was to pray for the Australian people who were affected by the bushfires.

“Millions of animals have died and houses have been destroyed, and we need to keep Australia in our prayers,” he said.

The vigil also focused on Fijians in Australia and those who lost their homes to the bushfires.

Fiji will be sending a troop of engineers from the Republic of Fiji Military Forces to assist in the bushfire crisis in Australia.

Other Pacific neighbours are doing the same.
