Assistance help family bounce back

Mere Naleba

A MOTHER of five considers herself lucky despite an inferno that destroyed her home along with her hopes of sending her children to school.

Mere Goundar, her husband and their five children, were left with only the clothes they were wearing during an early morning fire on January 13 that completely destroyed their Caubati home and school stationery she had bought for her children.

However, Mrs Goundar was all smiles yesterday after Post Fiji Limited stepped in to assist one of its clients who had done her back to school shopping with the company. Mrs Goundar's children, who are in Year 12 (Form Six), Year 10 (Form Four), Year 8 (Class 8) and Year 4 (Class Four), will now greet the new school year with new text books, exercise books, bags, shoes and stationery.

Post Fiji acting marketing officer Joseph Mataika was present at the main branch in Suva yesterday to present Mrs Goundar with her children's school needs.

"I am so grateful to the staff and management of Post Fiji Limited for allowing us to come and take the stationery," she said.

"We had just bought the school items for our children and that fire destroyed everything we had worked hard for.

"With four children in school, we were worried about how we would send them to school with their stationery. This is such a relief."
