A retired school headteacher and two retired FSC workers, all from Lane 25 in Rarawai, Ba have teamed up with an Auckland couple to help the families in their area who have been severely affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Dhiren Singh, Timoci Qima and Bal Krishna have managed to get a donation of $1,100 from a group in Auckland led by Lata Singh and her husband, Mahendra Singh who also help the poor in New Zealand.

Dhiren Singh says 22 families in their area will each receive $50 worth of basic food items today.

He says the aim of this project is to encourage people in other areas to team up and help the needy.

Singh says the situation in Ba is not encouraging. He says while some factories are operational, they only employ people for only two or three days in a week and people are just managing to survive.

The retired headteacher from Ba is also calling on the many former Fiji residents overseas to send money to help their families and friends who are in dire need of assistance.

Meanwhile, 68 year old Singh who has received the first jab of the AstraZeneca vaccine adds it is a pity that some people are taking a negative view on vaccination.

Singh also raises the question to the elderly who do not want to get vaccinated on how they will feel when they pass on COVID-19 to their children and grandchildren.

He went on to say that people can die from COVID-19 and by not having the layer of protection, they can also cause the death of other family members.

Singh says most people in Lane 25 have received the first dose.

You can contact Singh on 9295873 to donate and help the most severely affected in Rarawai and nearby areas.
