A MOBILE phone company says it always welcomes genuine assistance requests from needy people around Fiji in terms of ability devices and arrangements for delivery directly to them.

Vodafone Fiji Foundation says their employees are always in the frontline to assist needy people through its Employment Engagement programs and the foundation ensures that it support their efforts.

Sarojini Devi of Sabeto in Nadi is the latest to be supported by the foundation.

Ms Devi was having difficulty walking with canes and was being assisted by her daughter.

Foundation executive Ambalika Kutty said they were grateful to the Wheelchair Foundation in the UK that gave ability devices and partnering with the Spinal Injury Association for the dissemination of the devices.

With that, Ms Devi, who has been suffering from spinal disposition for the past six years after being involved in a car accident in 2007, thanked the foundation for the assistance.
