BSP Life has donated $30,000 to help families affected by the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The donation has been distributed to the Fiji Cancer Society – Hope at Home initiative, Veilomani Food Bank, Being Helping Hands Fiji, as well as workers in the tourism sector.

BSP Life says this is in addition to $7,000 that was raised by BSP Life staff through internal fundraising efforts with food packs distributed in June to families in the Central, Western, and Northern Division.

BSP Life Managing Director Michael Nacola says they see and hear of heartbreaking stories every day of families finding it difficult to make ends meet during this crisis.

He says they hope that this small donation will go some way to supporting those in need.

Nacola says they applaud the effort of the various organisations that are coordinating the assistance programs and urge everyone, including corporate organisations, who can assist to do so in whatever way possible.

Ministry of Housing and Community Development Permanent Secretary Sanjeeva Perera says it is partnerships like these that enable them to assist the community and they are grateful to BSP Life, as part of a strong business community for coming forward and providing the much-needed assistance.
