Help flows in
HELP for the poor Labasa family whose story was published in this newspaper last month has not stopped. The Ahmadiyya Muslim Women's Movement gave $200 to the family of Suren Prasad who lives in Tiri, Wailevu. A group of officials from Radio Navtarang also gave $1500 to the family.
THE Occupational Health and Safety department of the China Railway First Group which is working on the Dreketi Nabouwalu highway will continue visiting communities along the highway to create awareness of their safety. CRFG spokesman Donald Singh earlier confirmed that awareness groups would work with the communities to maintain safety during the construction of the highway.
THE LTA is focusing on raising awareness of the dangers of defying road rules. LTA spokesman Iliesa Sokia said the capacity to respond to pedestrian safety was an important component of efforts to prevent road injuries. He said pedestrian collisions, like other road traffic crashes, should not be accepted as inevitable because they were both predictable and preventable.
