No person should go to bed hungry, says Being Helping Hands Fiji, Lautoka coordinator, Ashley Krishna.

Ms Krishna and her team have so far assisted hundreds of struggling families in the Lautoka City area when the second wave of COVID-19 hit the country.

She said the team was assisting families on the motto “no person should go to bed hungry”.

“We try to at least help about 100 families per week where we work on requests and we have requests flowing in on our pages and we even get calls in the night,” she said.

“Our aim is to help each person who calls, their calls must be genuine.

“We can clearly say that from the time COVID-19 started to date we have helped more than 1000 families in Lautoka.”

She said families have been assisted with food packs and medications and at times wheelchairs.

“We try our utmost to give the best help to these people,” she added.

“Right now we are trying to help families who are suffering in silence and that is the reason why we are here, to help those who are in need.”

Ms Krishna said help must be given immediately to those who need it despite their ethnicity.

“This is a time when we should not be looking at other people’s gender, ethnicity or anything of that sort,” she said.

“This should be a time where we actually get together and help people who are struggling.”
