Local News in Brief

Positive support

AWARENESS of the Village Health and Wellness program has started in a few villages of Macuata province in the north. Spearheaded by the Vodafone ATH Fiji Foundation and ACATA (Action for Children and the Aged), the program is aimed at promoting a guideline towards healthy living through making use of fresh food already available in villages. Foundation executive Ambalika Devi said they had started working with the iTaukei Ministry. "At divisional levels, we go through the provincial offices and we have received enormous support from the provincial officers which is positive."
