Asco donates $15K for needy children
The Asco Foundation has donated $15,000 to support the Foundation for the Education of Needy Children (FENC Fiji).
This is the second such donation in as many months.
Chief executive officer and director for Asco Motors and Foundation Trustee, Craig Sims, said: “Our prior donation in January 2020, allowed for the provision of 338 school bags for children.
“With this donation, we are hoping for a similar amount to be provided to children impacted by TC Harold and families impacted by COVID-19 related impacts,” he said. “The Asco Foundation views education as the most important resource for Fiji, to allow children to grow into inquisitive and informed members of society. This donation will go a small way in helping some children learn and grow.”
FENC Fiji Officer – In Charge National Operations, Priya Lata, said: “The Asco Foundation has come through once again to support our team.
“We are grateful for the foundation’s continued support, especially during this challenging time.”
The Asco Foundation has been a supporter of FENC Fiji, which since its inception, has assisted more than 17,000 Fijian children with basic school supplies.
The recent donation from the Asco Foundation was for more than 40 road safety kits for schools around Viti and Vanua Levu.
