Bank of South Pacific assists brave hearts

FIJI'S Returned Soldier's and Ex-Servicemen Association (RSEA) has the heart to assist its 3000 financial members with their housing and medical needs and the education of their children.

But it has been a gradual show of support from the association because of the mere income it is currently generating from the $1 contribution of its members, and the occasional sale of the Poppy pins.

Following yesterday's $5000 presentation by the Bank South Pacific (BSP), the association is hopeful that other companies and organisations will step up and follow suit to assist those who had given their lives for the country.

RSEA president Ratu Peni Volavola said the income they received from the monthly contribution was no match to the needs of their members and their dependents.

BSP country manager Kevin McCarthy said they understood that Fiji's ex-servicemen were facing some tough times with their family members.
