ONE hundred and fifty five Muslim families in Labasa won't have to worry about food rations this month after the iCharity organisation gave them groceries yesterday.

Organisation Labasa representative Iqbal Hussein said they had been assisting most of the families for abut 10 years.

"We conducted a house to house survey a decade ago where we identified these families who were living under the poverty line," he said.

"They applied and we have been assisting them ever since.

"The families usually receive $60 each for their groceries. This is the second time we have assisted them this year and the first one was in February.

"For us, helping these families is fulfilling our social obligation and we also see it as an act of worship."
