IN a bid to give back to the community, staff members of the Fiji National Provident Fund gathered at the Fiji School for the Blind in Vatuwaqa to clean up the school compound and also gave items to the school hostel.
FNPF general manager member services Alipate Waqairawai said this was part of the institution’s social service program.
He said it was even more special because they were also celebrating the superannuation fund’s 50th anniversary.
“We have gone through the year’s undertaken work such as this elsewhere as part of our corporate social responsibilities,” Mr Waqairawai said.
“All residents at these places would at some time in their lives been part of FNPF, so as Fiji’s only superannuation fund we are obligated to give back to the community.”
Fiji Society for the Blind executive director Barbara Farouk said the school was grateful to the staff for taking time out to clean up at their school.
She said these visitations allowed the students to interact with the staff members and know more about the work they do.
