The Prime Minister’s Flood Relief Fund has received a further boost of $54,000 from three statutory bodies.
This afternoon the Fiji National Provident Fund gave $40,000 towards the appeal whilst the Housing Authority gave $10,000 and a further $4,000 from the Public Rental Board.
Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama thanked these organisations for their contribution.
Presenting FNPF’s donation was the fund’s chief executive officer Aisake Taito.
“We hope that this small token will assist Government in its relief effort and also be able to rehabilitate those who have been affected in the floods and donation is part of our group corporate social responsibility, especially for those in need,” Mr Taito said.
Housing Authority chief executive officer Alipate Naiorosui said their contribution would go towards those on the ground who have been affected.
“The Housing Authority is happy to make a donation to PM’s Flood Relief Fund and we believe it will go a long way to assist families who have been affected in these hard times,” he said.
PRB general manager Mesake Senibulu said their $4,000 assistance towards the PM’s appeal for rehabilitation would go to flood hit victims.
He said those affected were members of our society and thus the board was obliged to help those who were affected badly by the floods.
“It’s from the board, management and staff of PRB, who have generously contributed to that appeal. We feel for the people affected and we want to give a helping hand,” Mr Senibuli said.
