Marist Rugby Club officials brought some relief this week to 30 rugby players affected by COVID-19 by providing them with ration packs and masks.

A team led by former Flying Fijians Joseph Narruhn distributed the Duavata ration packs and Marist Rugby Club branded masks to the players living in Nabukavesi, Wainadoi and Nausori.

Club President, Lawrence Tikaram says this is part of the club’s on-going assistance programme for rugby players who have lost their jobs in these trying times.

He says they are grateful that Narruhn is leading this initiative for their men and women players once again.

Tikaram says in all adversity, unity is the key at the club and their platform of support engagement for their players is crucial off the field in times like these.

He says they are also working on providing specialized counseling services for affected players as well.

Club officials, members and their families were also given free safety masks as part of the outreach COVID program run by the Marist Rugby Club.

Marist Rugby Club also provided sporting equipment worth more than $2,500 to the MOBA Cyclone Yasa trust relief last year for affected Marist Old Boys in Nadivakarua, Kubulau in Bua and they have also been contributing towards the MBHS rugby and athletics program over the last 10 years.
