WHILE profit making is an essential aim of any business, corporate responsibility is something that most businesses take seriously and do their bit to give back to the community.

One of the country’s leading supermarket chains — RB Patel — is doing its bit in spreading a much needed cheer among children who are undergoing heart surgery.

RB Patel has partnered with Children’s Heart Foundation Fiji and provided essential packs for the children.

RB Patel general manager operations Jignesh Chauhan said “the work carried out by the Children’s Heart Foundation in Fiji is important and RB Patel Group Ltd is proud to partner in this initiative.

“It’s a difficult time for the family and the child undergoing surgery.

“We wish the children a speedy recovery”.

Mr Chauhan said RB Patel Group Ltd yesterday provided the Children’s Heart Foundation with 30 hamper packs for the children undergoing surgery.

According to Mr Chauhan each pack consisted of essentials; baby food, milk, cereals, bathing soap and other necessities.

A statement from the company yesterday said the Children’s Heart Foundation Fiji with the Shree Satya Sai Sanjeeveni Hospital (Raipur, India) under the Sai Prema Foundation’s “Gift of Life Project” has so far assisted more than 180 children with Congenital Heart Disease (CHD) to access lifesaving surgery.
