The Methodist Church in Fiji Social Service Committee Suva Circuit distributed 53 food packs and 63 school stationery packs to families who have been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic and Tropical Cyclone Harold around the Suva area.

Chairman Akuila Tawake says the food and stationery packs were distributed to their churches in the Suva Circuit and from there the churches will distribute it to the families they see are in need.

Tawake says they had taken 7 food packs and 8 stationery packs to their church in Veisari, and the church will give 5 packs to their church members and the rest to the families in that area that are in need.

He adds from what they see happening around the country, the food and stationery drive will continue throughout the year.

Food and stationery supplies were donated by members of the church, community groups and organisations and also people from overseas.

The committee will be holding their food and stationary drive every last Saturday of the month at the Centenary Church in Suva.
