IDO Donates to PM’s Relief Assistance
The Islamic Development Organization presented $5,000 to the Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama in Suva today.
IDO representative Abdul Asim said the organization had already been doing some work in the cyclone affected areas with the help of DISMAC officials in the Western Division. However, they could not get access to the islands because of the high cost of travelling and the scarcity of ships servicing the islands.
“So here we have $5,000 in cash to help our brothers and sisters and the children in Yasawa, Malolo and Vatulele islands,” Mr Asim said.
The organization recently provided 444 cartons of rations worth $50 each to be distributed in Ba, Tavua, Nadi and Lautoka.
The rations provided earlier in the Western Division was worth $20,000.
The Sydney-based non profit organisation has also requested to open up an office here in Fiji.
