Meals for needy

Nasik Swami

THE Iliesa Delana Foundation — Fijians in Need is inviting restaurants, hotels and people in the country to join hands and help those who are homeless.

The foundation is calling on people to come forward with any food they may like to contribute or select one day per month in which they would like to contribute a meal for those in need.

The foundation representatives including Fiji's Paralympic gold medalist Iliesa Delana met with volunteers at the Galley Restaurant at the Royal Suva Yacht Club last Wednesday with the view of a food rescue campaign for the homeless and mentally challenged.

Tara Dias of the Psychiatric Survivors Association (PSA), who was also present at the meeting, said other NGOs could also contribute.

Ms Dias also mentioned the PSA would particularly be interested in building relationships with individuals who are coming to get food and encourage them to get appropriate support.
