THE Vodafone ATH Fiji Foundation yesterday gathered leading organisations and companies from around the country to celebrate International Corporate Philanthropy Day.

At the celebration, Vodafone chief executive officer Aslam Khan told guests that their role in making a difference in the community could help change lives.

Mr Khan encouraged representatives from organisations to work together whether it be in the area of medical, poverty or any other social issues, their help would make a difference.

Minister for Health Doctor Neil Sharma also thanked the organisations for contributions to worthy community projects.

The Fiji Times was also invited to share successful stories published in the newspaper which has made a difference to the lives of people on Vanua Levu.

Published stories of disabled Jovilisi Golea and Antonio Tuvici who needed wheelchairs were also made known at the celebration — on how The Fiji Times stories touched hearts of people from around the world to give back to the communities.
