Families living in Caubati, Muanikoso Settlement, Kalokalo Crescent, Laqere, parts of Makoi, Valelevu, Nadera and other parts of the Suva Nausori lockdown area have been provided with food ration packs during the current lockdown period.
One of the recipients, Peter Moti says the ration provided will feed him and his family for the next two days.
Another recipient, Margaret Turaga says there are 10 of them in the family and this assistance will help sustain them until after the lockdown.
Fijians living in Suva and Nausori who genuinely require emergency food supply can put their request by dialing *161# where they must provide their name and other details including street address that will allow the Ministry to locate them quickly.
Acting Permanent Secretary for Economy, Shiri Gounder has assured Fijians in the lockdown areas that they have sufficient packs for distribution and if need be, more can be organised.
Gounder says this is a multi-stakeholder operation that includes the Ministry of Economy, Ministry of Health, RFMF, Fiji Police Force, Fiji Corrections Service, Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries, Forests, the Land Transport Authority, Water Authority of Fiji, Vodafone, Digicel and many other stakeholders.
