45 families within areas from Nakasi to Lami struggling due to the financial impact of the current COVID-19 outbreak in the country were assisted by Operation Grace last week.

Operation Grace is a group made up of twelve people that was formed in April and they try to assist a family with a care pack consisting of essential food items every week.

Each week, the team receives requests through their Facebook page โ€“ Operation Grace or referrals from the Department of Social Welfare.

Sometimes members of the group pay from their own pockets.

They also have good samaritans reach out to them with donations.

A $54 Operation Grace care pack includes 5kg flour, 4kg rice, 4kg sugar, 2kg dhal, 1 pack sanitary pad, 2 packets of biscuit, 2 5 pack noodles, 3 large tin fish, 1 washing soap, 1 750ml cooking oil, 1 packed salt and 1 10 pack toilet paper.

If you want to help Operation Grace, you can call Ela on 8745831.
