INDIA DONATES TO FLOOD APPEAL
Fiji and India share special ties and it remains strong after the Indian Government today donated over FJD $360,425 for the Prime Minister’s Flood Relief Fund.
Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama commended the Indian Government for the substantial donation, which he said the people of Fiji and especially those affected by the floods are grateful for.
“We are grateful for the considerable donation and it is very kind indeed for the Indian Government to assist those affected by the floods,” the head of Government told the Indian High Commissioner, His Excellency Vinod Kumar.
Mr Kumar informed the Prime Minister that the Indian Minister for External Affairs S.M. Krishna announced the donation in April.
“India and Fiji have close relations and this is a small token of support for the people devastated by the recent floods,” His Excellency Kumar said.
The Fiji Rugby Union also handed over the $15,000 donation that was collected as part of the charity auction held in Nadi recently.
FRU chief executive officer Manasa Baravilala handed the cheque over to the Prime Minister, who thanked FRU for their efforts.
