As Fijians continue to suffer financial constraints due to COVID-19, Lautoka residents Narayan Reddy and Allen Lockington have joined forces again to assist parents in getting their children back to school on the 19th of this month.

Reddy says they have distributed more than 250 packs of stationery and school bags to families affected by COVID-19 in the Western Division.

He says they are currently rolling out another 150 packs which include pens, pencils, books, shoes, school bags, rulers and mathematical sets.

Reddy says they receive donations from their friends overseas and in Fiji and also ordinary people who wanted to help those in need.

Reddy and Lockington have already sent two shipments of assistance to people affected by TC Yasa in Vanua Levu and have reached out to more than 200 families.

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