Volunteers from ANZ Fiji’s Staff Foundation have distributed refreshment packs to around 500 frontline healthcare workers between the Navua and Nausori corridor, CWM Hospital and Lautoka Hospital.

The ANZ Fiji Staff Foundation is a charitable trust, funded by staff donations and matched dollar for dollar by the Bank.

Foundation Lead, Tania Kotobalavu says the past few months have challenged Fijians in so many ways and have affected the way we live, work and interact with others.

Kotobalavu says no one has faced more uncertainty, anxiety and change than our frontline healthcare workers who bravely took on the enormous physical and emotional challenge.

She says our frontline healthcare workers put their own safety on the line to protect others in the face of COVID19.

Kotobalavu says the frontline workers are all heroes and the ANZ staff wanted to thank them.

She adds the ANZ staff in Fiji have also contributed more than 1,000 volunteer hours in the past 12 months.
