SHARING the spirit of love, Hare Krishna devotees in the hidden paradise town of Savusavu provided food to about 1000 people over the weekend.

Devotee Sanjay Bhim Deo said the gesture was something they engaged themselves in every month for the purpose of sharing the spirit of love and unity.

"This is an ongoing initiative for our organisation and it shows our love and care to everyone in society," he said.

"This sort of food distribution is part of our ritual and belief as faithful devotees. We fed people from all walks of life and we are glad that they turned up in large numbers.

"It was indeed a busy weekend for Savusavu as there were a lot of activities going on and we are happy that we satisfied the hungry."
