“Af­ter read­ing the head­lines in the news­pa­per that the Is­land does not have much food sup­ply, so we felt, in Di­wali this year, we want to con­trib­ute to some­thing for the fam­i­lies in the Is­land. “We want to give them some­thing to look upon and this ini­tia­tive is a lit­tle hope for them to look up to. “The boat is leav­ing on Tues­day and by Wed­nes­day they should re­ceive the food items.

“It is later than Di­wali, but some­thing they would re­mem­ber us by till Christ­mas and New Year’s,” Mr Sabarat­nam said. He said Govern­ment has done their part, the busi­ness lead­ers and cor­po­rate or­gan­i­sa­tions have done their part, but now it’s the peo­ple who need to come for­ward. “We have to help our peo­ple to pre­pare for the fu­ture and their chil­dren’s wellde­vel­op­ment.

“We need a lot of con­tri­bu­tions to help the Trop­i­cal Cy­clone Win­ston af­fected vic­tims,” Mr Sabarat­nam said. Edited by Maraia Vula
