Lautoka businessman, Narayan Reddy and resident Allen Lockington have come together once again to help people affected by TC Yasa and they have sent the first phase of relief supplies for 200 families to Vanua Levu yesterday.

They have also been assisting people affected by COVID-19. Reddy says these relief items include 8 to 10 tonnes of clothing which has been donated by Chand’s Clothing in Lautoka, food supplies, water and dry goods which has been donated by their friends from Fiji and overseas.

Reddy says NAI’A Cruises has provided a vessel to them for free to take the relief supplies to Savusavu.

Reddy says the donation that is received from today till the 1st of next month will be sent to the Lau Group and other islands on the 2nd of next month.

If you would like to donate towards this worthy cause, you can call Narayan Reddy on 9968900.
