Gifts of love for children

Dawn Gibson
Tuesday, December 25, 2012

CHILDREN who experienced the trauma of Tropical Cyclone Evan last week can expect a little piece of Christmas happiness this week, with gifts being brought from parts of Fiji to the most affected areas in the west.

This came after The Fiji Times launched a gift drive for the children who were affected by TC Evan, last week.

The initiative has already seen different companies and individuals deliver gifts to The Fiji Times office in order to share the spirit of the Christmas season.

On Saturday December 22, one such giver was Next Level Internet Café owner, Gerard Ho, who gave a carton of gifts for children in the west.

"We heard about the gift drive and so we thought it would be a good idea to buy some toys for these kids.

"We just wanted to put a smile on their faces for Christmas," Mr Ho said.

The initiative was launched by this newspaper and its partners, Williams and Gosling, Save the Children Fiji and the Rotary Club of Lautoka last week.

The drive is set to continue through to the New Year and people interested in giving are encouraged to do so.

All gifts can be dropped at the Save the Children Fiji office at 25 Pender Street, or at The Fiji Times offices at 117 Victoria Parade and Tukani Street in Lautoka.
