THE Dance Fiji Dance group pledged its financial support to the Fiji Kidney Foundation yesterday.

The group injected its first financial assistance of $1600 and have big plans to continue this throughout the year.

"Dance Fiji Dance group president Ravin Chand's father died from kidney failure and during that time, Mr Chand couldn't afford kidney treatment," Radhika Rani, Dance Fiji Dance vice-president said.

"Mr Chand is now at a position where he can help others and he wants to offer this assistance to kidney patients, in memory of his late father."

She said the group promoted health, something that the Fiji Kidney Foundation also promoted.

Ms Rani said they had organised a walkathon on June 28 with all proceeds going to the foundation.

"We also have our annual show at the end of the year and five per cent of ticket sales will be given to Fiji Kidney Foundation."

She encouraged people living in the Nasinu area to look out for their volunteers on Saturday and give $1 each.
