The Sanatan Dharm Pratinidhi Sabha of Fiji will be providing meals to students attending their various schools who have been affected by COVID-19 while the Arya Pratinidhi Sabha of Fiji is yet to decide on how they will be assisting students attending their schools.

The Sanatan Dharm Pratinidhi Sabha runs 117 schools in the country and they have more than 70,000 students.

Sabha President Sarju Prasad says they are in talks with the various school management on how this can be organised.

He says people can also contact their branches if they need assistance.

Prasad is urging students to be forthcoming with their teachers so that they can be assisted.

He has also reiterated the message of the Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama and the Education Ministry and says that parents should send their children to school even if they do not have school supplies, uniforms or even if they are unable to bring their lunch.

Meanwhile, Arya Pratinidhi Sabha of Fiji President Bhuwan Dutt says they will be having a meeting with their members next week to decide on how they will be helping their students.

The Sabha runs 14 primary schools and 6 high schools.
