Asco Foundation has donated $15,000 to the Foundation for the Education of Needy Children(FENC Fiji), to assist children impacted by TC Harold and families impacted by COVID-19.

Director and CEO for Asco Motors and Foundation Trustee, Craig Sims says they view education as the most important resource for Fiji, to allow children to grow into inquisitive and informed members of society.

Sims says this donation will go a small way in helping some children learn and grow.

He says their prior donation in January 2020, allowed for the provision of 338 school bags for children and they are hoping for a similar amount to be provided to children.

FENCF Fiji Officer In Charge National Operations Priya Lata says the Asco Foundation has come through once again to support their team and they are grateful for the foundation's continued support, especially during this challenging time.

The recent donation from the Asco Foundation was the 40 road safety kits for schools around Viti and Vanua Levu.
