Minister for Education Rosy Akbar follows the Barter for Better Fiji Facebook page religiously, seeking out disadvantaged families to help.

The page, which was created more than a month ago, has gained traction online for the selfless display of generosity shown to people financially affected by COVID-19.

Ms Akbar says her participation is, “my personal contribution to that forum. I have the barter bug.

“I do whatever little I can to support, with whatever is within my means.”
