Fiji Sun - - Sunbiz -

The Prime Min­is­ter’s Na­tional Dis­as­ter Re­lief and Re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion Fund has been boosted by another $10,000. This was a do­na­tion from a Fi­jian-owned com­pany op­er­at­ing out of Aus­tralia - Mesh and Bar Pty Limited. The cheque was handed over to the Prime Min­is­ter Voreqe Bain­i­marama by the com­pany’s man­ag­ing di­rec­tor Dak­sesh Pa­tel at the com­pany’s main of­fice in Glen­den­ning, New South Wales in Aus­tralia. Mr Pa­tel said it was the com­pany’s duty in as­sist­ing their fel­low coun­try­men and women. “It is our moral obli­ga­tion and we have been in­spired by the re­silience of our peo­ple back home and we can only as­sist them in build­ing back stronger,” said Mr Pa­tel.

“This con­tri­bu­tion is not only on be­half of the com­pany but on be­half of all the staff whom are em­ployed here.” PM Bain­i­marama ac­knowl­edged the con­tri­bu­tion and thanked the com­pany for its as­sis­tance in help­ing Fi­jians re­builds their lives. Mesh and Bar Ltd em­ploys over 300 staff in which one third are Pa­cific is­lan­ders.
