Gifts for children

IN-PATIENT children in hospitals around the country can now look forward to receiving Christmas gifts, thanks to the efforts of a child rights organisation.

Save the Children Fiji (SC Fiji) has teamed up with Vinod Patel and Company Limited to collect Christmas gifts to distribute to children in hospitals.

SC Fiji CEO Chandra Shekhar said employees and customers of Vinod Patel would donate gifts to SC Fiji for these vulnerable children.

Mr Shekhar said there were other donors who dropped by their office to leave gifts for the children.

"SC Fiji includes this important activity in the calendar every year to enable children in hospitals to also enjoy the spirit of Christmas and to let them know that there are friends and relatives who do care for them," he said.

He said SC Fiji appreciated the support from Vinod Patel and other donors to work towards giving children a brighter Christmas.

SC Fiji staff will visit hospitals to meet these children and give them gifts before Christmas.

The organisation is encouraging members of the public to also give gifts in this season of giving.
