THE Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (LDS) has assisted the government with relief items worth $55,000.

The assistance was presented to the permanent secretary for Provincial Development and National Disaster Management, Lieutenant Colonel Inia Seruiratu.

"We give because we have it," Elder Taniela Wakolo of the LDS Church area 70 said.

"This is not the first time we have assisted our brothers and sisters affected by the flood.

"It is not about the money for us but because of our love for everyone."

The assistance was sourced by members of the LDS Church worldwide, as part of its humanitarian assistance.

"We want to thank the LDS Church and its members for this kind assistance," said Lt-Col Seruiratu. "Please be rest assured that all these food items have come at an opportune time and we will soon distribute these to all affected families and people," he said.
