THE Radisson Blu Resort Fiji has given more than $400,000 worth of equipment to Nadi schools since it began its “Adopt A School” program in 2012.
General manager Charles Homsy said the program had assisted more than 30 local schools by installing more than 650 computers, established 30 libraries and distributed more than 80,000 library books.
“We have established a strong presence in our community for responsible business from early foundations in 2012 with our ‘Adopt A School’ program and will continue the focus in ensuring a brighter future for our children,” he said.
Mr Homsy said last month, the resort distributed gifts from guests to Vaturu Primary School and Tau Primary School including school supplies, library books, sports equipment and learning tools that included a projector and 10 computers.
He added that resort staff members introduced initiatives over the month of June including a blood drive for the Lautoka Hospital, food drive for the Loloma Home and a clean-up campaign of neighbouring
communities with the Nadi Town Council.
Resort human resources manager Waseroma Baleinamaka said Radisson Blu Fiji led a focus group with all departments and aimed to address basic needs such as food, shelter and health this month.
“As a responsible business, we would like to strike the right work life balance.
“It is in this regard that staff participated in afternoon walks and other outdoor activities.
“Furthermore, staff took advantage of the full medical health check-up, and also participated in the blood drive that was held at the hotel property during the month.”
