The Methodist Church in Fiji Secretary for Communications Reverend Wilfred Regunamada says this is the time for everyone to come together and help one another regardless of which ethnicity or religious groups we belong to.
Reverend Regunamada says they have helped people in the Suva and Nausori lockdown area and in other areas who were in great need of assistance.
He says the church, through their different circuits, has distributed food rations to families who were in need just before the Suva/Nausori lockdown started on Friday.
Reverend Regunamada says they have also done this in other areas where the church is working with their Department of Christian Citizenship.
He says this department had kept donated food for a time like this and just before 11pm Friday, people had come and taken some food to keep them going throughout this lockdown.
Reverend Regunamada says this can only happen if we all work together and put our differences aside.
He says they have several social media platforms where they try and keep in touch with the people even when there is limited movements or restrictions in place.
