ASCO donates to PM's flood appeal
Asco Motors’s Toyota Tsusho South Pacific Holdings and the Fiji Motors Association made a donation to the Prime Minister’s Flood Relief Appeal Fund today.
Asco Motors chief executive officer Abdul Hafiz said the recent floods were the worst to hit Fiji in decades, which resulted in widespread devastation including loss of life and severe damage to infrastructure, homes, crops, motor vehicles, animals, shops and schools.
“Fiji is facing a long road to recovery and we would like to assist by making a contribution to the flood relief appeal. Toyota Tsusho South Pacific Holdings under Asco Motors has made a donation of AUD$10,000 while the Fiji Motors Association has made a donation of $3,000,” Mr Hafiz said.
The Acting Prime Minister and Attorney-General, Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum said Government had extended a 200 per cent tax deduction for cash donations exceeding $1,000 to the Flood Appeal Fund.
He said a number of companies had given donations towards the flood appeal fund and he was grateful for the assistance.
