As many families are still struggling due to the impacts of COVID-19, Fijians have planned to unite and help eachother celebrate Diwali today.

Brij Chand of Nakasi says her plan is to invite her neighbours and those who may not celebrate Diwali this year to be part of her happiness.

She says in this time of COVID-19, one must think about how they can come together and help eachother celebrate Diwali.

Sugra Habib of Makoi who won the $150 prize money in the Sargam Golden Harvest and Baking Range Diwali Sweets and Savouries competition says she will help her friends by giving sweets to them as most of them are struggling.

The 66-year-old says her message this Diwali is for people to help their needy neighbours and family.

We also spoke to some other people about how they will be celebrating Diwali this year.

People will be able to use fireworks from 5pm to midnight today.
