COVID-19: Help In Need Is Help Indeed

A group of men from different backgrounds have come together to help those in need and have had employment affected by the lockdown and containment.

Yesterday, the group gave supplies for the 21 students of Adi Moapa Secondary School who have been told not to leave Viti Levu and are staying at the Wainimako Church Hall in Cunningham.

Group spokesperson Mohammed Saiyaz Khan said they had seen an article in the Fiji Sun about the students and the group communicated to provide something for the students.

“We gave food and stationery. It is a small gesture which we feel will spark  more help for the students who are stuck on Viti Levu,” he said.

The items for the students were picked by the Ministry of Health team which would be given to the students.

Mr Khan said for today they were looking at families within the Suva containment zone. He said they were looking at families whose employment had been affected.

“There are women who were house girls and maids and now cannot go to work. We assess them before helping them,” he said.

“We do not help with money but with food for the family. These are times when a Fijian in need can be helped.”

The Ministry of Health Permanent Secretary Dr James Fong has called on businesses and groups to fill in the gaps to help needy Fijians.
