Frankston City Council is extending a helping hand to Fiji to provide critical humanitarian assistance, particularly with the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The aid came after an approach from the Victorian Multicultural Sports Association. “Noting that we are in the process of forming into a (Friendship City) relationship with Suva and highlighting the situation in Fiji with COVID, they requested urgent support,” Mayor Kris Bolam said.

Cr Bolam reached out to business and community contacts, raising $8400 within two weeks on top of a $6000 contribution from the council. “There’s been significant corporate stewardship with community organisations and individuals providing support. It’s been a marvellous effort with many providing items and businesses providing discounts for the purchase of essential aid for what is an important cause.

“We are looking at a Friendship City relationship and when a friend is in need you do your best to support that friend. They are our friends. We have signified our intention to enter into an agreement with them. This is the right thing to do given the growing Pacific Islander population in Frankston City and it will be greatly appreciated.”

Association president Victor Kumar welcomed the assistance. “This vital support will make a huge difference in Fiji, particularly to mothers and babies,” Mr Kumar said. “It means a lot to the people of Fiji during these difficult times.”

The aid includes $5500 for hospital beds to help Fiji’s response to the pandemic, as well as sanitary products for women, baby products, children’s clothing, sanitiser, and personal protection equipment.
