FRIEND Fiji founder and CEO, Sashi Kiran says there may be a need to organize a massive food ration drive for those people that are in all containment areas and particularly for those in the informal sector.
Kiran says they also call on the Social Welfare Department to look into the social protection of the vulnerable people urgently.
She says they have been working with the Commissioner Western's Office to provide food to people in self-quarantine or isolation.
Kiran adds while COVID-19 is a major worry right now with the super spreader event, they have another major crisis evolving relating to food.
She has once again called on people to show compassion to those who have contracted the virus and stop vilifying them.
Kiran also says this will enable people to be more confident in coming forward with information.
FRIEND Fiji has been assisting thousands of families affected by COVID-19 and the recent cyclones with food and other basic items in the Western Division and other parts of Fiji.
