Maciu Natoga, 30, is one of the Amazing Fijians that had stepped up in trying times to do good in the community without expecting anything in return.

Over the weekend, Mr Natoga gave Suva street dwellers a reason to smile when he distributed hot meals for more than 30 people who have called the streets their home amid the pandemic.

The former hotel worker who now operates his flower arrangement business at home, believes that in a time of crisis, lending a helping hand to those in need was crucial.

“I have been observing that these men and women who live in the streets are still around here even during this crisis,” he said.

“It had always hurt me that they are here on the streets receiving minimal assistance so I thought that I would just step out with the very little that I have and feed them.”

Mr Natoga said he could not contain his emotions with the reaction he received from street dwellers when distributing food packs.

“They were not expecting it and some of them told me that they had a packet of noodles remaining that they were going to share amongst each other while some said they were still deciding on what to eat.”

“Some were emotional while taking their food packs and I was really touched and emotional too.”

He urged Fijians to look out for each other and lend a helping hand in even the smallest way they could.
