The Delegation of the European Union for the Pacific today handed over one thousand five hundred reusable masks and four hundred sixty-eight litres of hand sanitisers to three Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs).

The support provided to the Fiji Muslim League’s Makoi Women’s Vocational Training Centre, Sai Perma Foundation and Adventist Development and Relief Agency (ADRA) Fiji enables these NGOs to provide free reusable masks and hand sanitisers to the most affected communities to protect them and their families from this outbreak in Viti Levu.

At the handover, the European Union Ambassador to Fiji and for the Pacific Sujiro Seam said:  “Like last year, I was not able to host the Day of Europe celebration on 9 May, so I decided to repurpose the corresponding budget, with three goals in mind: First, focus on something useful for the most vulnerable communities in Fiji and masks and hand sanitisers serve that purpose; second, work with Fijian local businesses and I am happy we were able to source the masks from Zuber Fiji and the hand sanitizer from Fiji Chemicals; third, work with our civil society partners and I am grateful to the Adventist Development and Relief Agency (ADRA), the Fiji Muslim League and the Sai Prema Foundation for organising the distribution of the masks and hand sanitiser funded by the European Union”.
