Fiji is  getting a helping hand from Frankston City Council after enduring a particularly tough time with Covid-19.

The pandemic caused much suffering and brought the friendly islands to a near standstill.

Mayor Kris Bolam, initiated a critical humanitarian response  after being approached by the Victorian Multicultural Sports Association Inc  that noted Frankston and Suva (Fiji) are in negotiations regarding a Friendship City relationship.

“Noting that we are in the process of forming into a relationship with Suva and highlighting the situation in Fiji with COVID, they requested urgent support,” the Mayor said.

Mayor Bolam reached out to business and community contacts, raising $8400 within two weeks on top of a $6000 contribution from Council.

The mayor said ‘It’s been a marvellous effort with many providing items and businesses providing discounts for the purchase of essential aid for what is an important cause’

Victor Kumar Victorian Multicultural Sports Association Inc President said the assistance will provide a boost, adding: “This vital support will make a huge difference in Fiji, particularly to mothers and babies. It means a lot to the people of Fiji during these difficult times.”
