IN a bid to raise awareness on improving nutrition in children and battling malnutrition in Fiji, Save the Children Fiji (SC Fiji) held a Race for Survival.
Children from six primary schools joined a number of other countries who were also part of the race initiated by Save the Children International.
Speaking at the event, SC Fiji's new CEO Raijeli Nicole said the race was about shedding light on the idea of children racing for their survival.
"Today, children from at least 100 countries from as far as China, Bangladesh, Philippines, Kenya, England, Nepal and as close as Australia and New Zealand are running a relay race to say 'No child is born to die. And no mother should die giving birth'," Mrs Nicole said to guests and participants yesterday.
