MOU to serve vulnerables
A CHARITABLE organisation, JP Bayly Trust, whose mandate is to provide food, and medical assistance for as many as 500 underprivileged families in Fiji has partnered with the Fiji Cancer Society (FCS) to help vulnerable communities in Fiji.
This was made possible as both parties signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) recently.
The MOU formalises an agreement representing the interest of two organisations to work in collaboration to enhance the outcomes of their respective scope of work in serving vulnerable communities.
The agreement also formalises a partnership to mutually support their individual mandates through the principle of positive working relationships and shared resources for better results.
JP Bayly Trust chairman Digby Bossley says in 2023, Bayly Trust will complete 70 years of charity work in Fiji in 2024. The trust has branches in Suva, Lautoka and Labasa.
He said the MOU would also increase the visibility and impact of the two organisations working in collaboration in Fiji as both organisations were well established to aid the needy.
FCS president Makrava Wilson said JP Bayly Trust has been quietly working behind the scenes to improve the lives of vulnerable communities and have had great outcomes with the support provided to the families.
“This partnership is timely for the cancer society as we work towards improving the lives of our vulnerable communities in Fiji together,” Mr Wilson said.
He said through the newly formed partnership, this would mean FCS patients would be able to access the services of Bayly Trust.
