The Fijian Competition and Consumer Commission (FCCC) thanked the United States Embassy for their donation to the Veilomani Food Bank.

The initiative is led by FCCC, to reach out to Fijians families whose family members, relatives or workmates tested positive for COVID19 and were directly affected by the quarantine because no one from the family is able to go to work.

“I would like to thank His Excellency Joseph Cella and the staff of the United States embassy for their generous donation towards the Veilomani Food Bank,” said FCCC CEO, Joel Abraham.

“We are living in a time where we need to show solidarity and stand together not just as Fijians but as human beings.”

The Ambassador of the United States to Fiji, His Excellency, Joseph Cella, said during the donation handover that he mobilised members of the embassy to donate non-perishable food items and cash for the food bank and was honoured to be the first to this noble effort.

“Every bit counts and it’s important that we show our Fijian spirit and “Love your neighbour” and help our brothers and sisters in this time of need.”

The food bank is part of FCCC’s social corporate responsibility and aims to assist Fijians worst hit by COVID-19.
