Students affected by Tropical Cyclone Yasa and Ana can expect to receive more assistance as the Arya Pratinidhi Sabha of Fiji has donated $6,500 to the Ministry of Education.
Sabha’s Director Education, Kamlesh Arya says as an education stakeholder, they believe the Ministry is most suited for delivering assistance as it has the statistical data and the necessary professional network.
He says soon after the recent tropical cyclones the Sabha made an appeal to its local affiliates and international Arya Samaj organisations.
Arya adds the Sabha has internally raised $5,000 while Arya Pratinidhi of Queensland had contributed $1,500.
Minister for Education, Rosy Akbar says they are very thankful to the Sabha for their generosity as the assistance will further boost support to the students.
The Ministry says they will continue in its effort to provide equitable quality education for all Fijians under all circumstances.
