A COMMUNITY worker who spent his life helping others yesterday found himself on the receiving end of a wheelchair from Vodafone Fiji and Western Charity Alliance.

Gopal Krishna, 56, was thankful for the gift and according to Western Charity Alliance executive director Jitendra Naidu, the Malolo, Nadi, native was identified by the foundation as being in dire need of a wheelchair.

"Recently, he was amputated and needed special attention," he said.

"Western Charity identified him and teamed up with Vodafone to assist people like him who are disabled and need special attention for survival."

Mr Naidu said the foundation was a newly formed non-government organisation that strived for the betterment of lives for people in the local community.

"Vodafone Fiji has always been a foundation for its people and for the nation as well, contributing enormously towards the development and sustainability of our community.

"Western Charity Alliance is fortunate to collaborate with them and will keep walking closely with them, mobilising people and bringing in social change in our community."
