Helping hand for temple

Salaseini Moceiwai
Tuesday, April 29, 2014

MEMBERS of the Tuatua Gayatri Mandir in Labasa recieved $5000 worth of timber to refurbish their partly damaged temple.

The items were given by one of the Northern Division's prominent businessmen Charan Jeath Singh.

The temple was partly damaged by fire in September last year, prompting members to worship in a small building adjacent to the temple.

Mr Singh said it was only proper for him to give such building materials to help them rebuild their temple.

"I thought it was only fitting for me to donate to help the members reinstate their temple," he said.

"It's about seven months now and the development process of the temple is very slow and I know my donation will boost such renovation works.

"This donation is also to commemorate the lives of my late father Gurbachan Singh and mother Raj Kali who were pioneers and true worshippers in this town and I know they would really appreciate my assistance to the temple."

Temple vice president Dewaak Prasad said they were very thankful to Mr Singh for his kind gesture.
