A CHEQUE of $2500 was presented on behalf of the Post Fiji Ltd staff members to the Fiji Cancer Society (FCS) in Suva.
This was done during Post Fiji Ltd’s breast cancer awareness morning tea session with staff members contributing from all its offices around the country.
FCS board member Inoke Bainimarama said survivors played an important role in raising awareness about breast cancer.
“Cancer is all about early detection and prevention. I want to thank the support shown by Post Fiji towards FCS and helping us create more awareness about cancer in the country,” Mr Bainimarama said last Friday.
He said all funds collected through the morning tea initiatives would go into providing services to the patients suffering from cancer.
Post Fiji Ltd’s head of retail and marketing Isaac Mow said the morning tea was an important event for the company.
“It is important because not only it helps us create awareness about breast cancer but also gets our staff actively involved as well,” Mr Mow said.
He said breast cancer not only affected women but also men as well in the country. The company organised a selfie and best decoration competition for its staff members in order for them to participate in the initiative.
