Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama yesterday received a cheque donation from Xplizit Car Club of Fiji that will assist Fijians affected by the global pandemic of COVID-19.
Bainimarama thanked the group for the donation and highlighted that the donation will be utilised to buy groceries for those affected by the pandemic.
The donation of around five thousand dollars was collected from the recent Car Show organised by the group in February.
Club president Kavit Kumar said they are hopeful that the donation will be able to provide some relief for those affected Fijians.
Meanwhile, Pacific Energy Pte Limited as a major sponsor of this initiative has also organised a fundraising drive as part of its corporate social responsibility whereby from the purchase of a litre of fuel, two cents will directly go towards the Prime Ministers Relief Fund for COVID-19.
Pacific Energy’s Commercial Business Manager Lubricants Avinesh Sharma said the initiative started two weeks ago and will end in August.
