Text and help NGO

Dawn Gibson

THE Fiji Network Plus (FJN+) and Digicel launched a text and win mobile phone promotion in which all the proceeds go towards helping FJN+ in terms of the running of their daily business.

The launch took place last weekend and people are being asked to text "zero" to 171 — a message which costs 99cents, but means a lot to FJN+, which is seeking funding assistance.

"Our organisation really needs help in terms of funding. This money is spent wholly on looking after the needs of the 100 or so women, children and men living with HIV and AIDS in Fiji who are registered with FJN+," FJN+ fundraising and sponsorship manager Fiji Apolosi Lasei said in an interview.

"A lot of people don't really know that FJN+ is the only organisation in Fiji which deals exclusively with the needs of Fijians living with HIV and AIDS."

Meanwhile, Digicel communications manager Satish Narain said the company was delighted to support the mobile initiative.

"Digicel has set up the text platform free and will give back 100 per cent of text revenue from this project to the AIDS advocacy group."
