DULUX JOINS GOVT’S ADOPT A SCHOOL INITIATIVE
Dulux and its local subsidiary Pacific Coatings Limited yesterday contributed towards Government’s rebuilding efforts post Tropical Cyclone Winston. Attorney-General Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum thanked the company for coming on board Government’s Adopta-School initiative, which has already received huge response locally and internationally. $10,000 in cash was donated towards the Prime Minister’s Relief fund by Pacific Coatings Limited while $40,000 worth of paint for repainting of damaged schools were donated by Dulux. Paint would be delivered by the company in whichever colour was requested when the painting of damaged schools were undertaken. Company chief executive officer George Karountzos said after the devastation of TC Winston, they brainstormed how best they could assist Fiji and seeing the importance Government placed on repairing of damaged schools, the donation was decided.
