Help pours in

Salaseini Moceiwai
Wednesday, July 30, 2014

ONE of the Northern Division's most successful businessmen has extended his timely help to students of Korotari Primary School in the outskirts of Labasa with $1000 worth of stationery.

This, after one of the school blocks was completely destroyed by fire with on Monday afternoon.

Apart from the humanitarian act, owner of Parmod Enterprises Ltd Parmod Chand said the monetary gift was something he was obliged to do because he spent five years of his primary education at the school in the 1960s.

"When I heard of the fire incident, I was shocked and at the same time, pitiful because this was where I spent most of my primary school years in," Mr Chand said.

"I made sure to visit the school to offer my help in any way I could. I spent five years there (school) back in the 60s and hearing about this tragic incident, I was touched because this was where I completed my Years 2 to 6 education.

"Most of the stationery has been destroyed and I felt it was only proper to start off my assistance with books, pens and other educational materials. I have promised the school manager a sum of $1000 for the materials and he is happy to receive it."

Mr Chand said his assistance would not only end there, instead he was ready to assist the school if they needed more of his help.

Manager Om Prakash said Mr Chand was the first person to come to their aid.
