Timely aid

Salaseini Moceiwai

TANGILLA Hussein of Naleba could not stop smiling when she was taken to Janta Store in Labasa early yesterday morning to buy educational items.

The Year 7 student did not start school last week as she had no stationery and uniform.

The Foundation for the Education of Needy Children in Fiji (FENC Fiji) assisted Ms Hussein with all her educational requirements.

"I am so thankful to the centre for helping me with my education. I wouldn't have been joining my classmates this week if it wasn't for the assistance from this generous organisation," she said.

"I really can't express how happy I am. My father is a cane labourer and he doesn't earn a lot of money because he is only employed during crushing season.

Her father, Gulam Hussein, shared similar sentiments saying he was grateful to the centre for stepping in to help his daughter.

"A school teacher told me about the centre and for the past three years, officials here in Labasa have been very helpful," he said.

"Thank you FENC Fiji for your tremendous help."

FENC Fiji divisional program administrator northern, Maria Kaukimoce, said they had helped more than 260 students.
