As our frontliners continue their efforts to combat the spread of COVID-19 in the country, the Fiji Water Foundation has donated 30 new tents to the Ministry of Health.

The tents were the result of discussions between the Foundation and Lami based tent maker Tents and Awnings Limited.

One of the areas they identified was the need for proper shelter for front line workers, especially for the vaccination drive teams.

Health Minister Dr Ifereimi Waqainabete has thanked the Foundation for the assistance and has assured them that the tents will be put to good use.

Dr Waqainabete says these tents will be very useful for the people on the ground and will give them the opportunity to be able to ‘pick up and go’ as they have remodeled themselves to be more versatile.

Fiji Water Director External Affairs and Community Engagement Geoffrey Smith says they are aware there is still a lot to do in the fight against COVID-19.

He says he is hoping that the donation will make a difference not only for the government but for the frontline workers as well.
