Education assistance

Salaseini Moceiwai
Monday, January 27, 2014

PROMINENT social worker Selina Lee Wah has stepped in to assist two unfortunate students in Labasa with their educational items.

On Saturday, high-schoolers Shinal Swashtika and Manisha Prasad were all smiles when Mrs Lee-Wah bought their stationery, toiletries and beddings to name a few.

Ms Swashtika said she was fortunate to have met Mrs Lee-Wah who had been assisting her since she was in Year 6.

"I am now in Form Five and I continue to receive educational assistance from this generous woman," she said.

"I really can't express how happy I am.

"I have been staying with my uncle for the last five years after my mother passed away and I am glad that Mrs Lee-Wah has continued to help me with my education.

"I will study very hard and become a successful person in life so the assistance I am receiving is not wasted."

For Ms Prasad, she said she was not the only one who had benefited from Mrs Lee-Wah's help but her family too.

"Mrs Lee-Wah helped us with our new home and now she is helping me with my education," she said.
