Water tanks for villages

Salaseini Moceiwai
Wednesday, February 26, 2014

THE Church of Jesus Christ of the Latter Day Saints, through its Latter Day Saint Charities, has spent about $US100million ($F187m) on humanitarian projects around the globe over the past two years.

Speaking to this newspaper at one of the organisation's water tank handover in Macuata last week, humanitarian specialist elder Ralph Howard said they would continue to assist the people in need.

"The projects we have initiated for the less fortunate people range from food, water, eye vision, immunisation, neo-natal resuscitation, natural disaster emergencies and many more," he said.

"People have greatly benefited from our help and we feel that our humanitarian work is necessary for the sake of improving people's lives. This is also one way of administering and fulfilling the word of God.

"The Bible says that if we have, we should give and through our humanitarian programs, we are giving."

Mr Howard said they had been in existence in Fiji for the past 50 years and had assisted many Fijians with their livelihood.

Last week, the church gave water tanks to villagers of Nacereyaga, Saivou, Vacunimata and Nacereyaga District School.
