Education assistance

Salaseini Moceiwai

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.
