PROJECTS    KINCUMBER NEIGHBOURHOOD CENTRE           

Rotarians providing support to Kincumber Neighbourhood Centre.  This is what 4 pallets of food looks like, all packed into food parcels for those families in the local community requiring food assistance.  Once the impact of COVID-19 was evident, the Club of Kincumber became involved providing support to the three Community Centres on the Central Coast with their food distribution programs.  The Club has been hiring a 4-tonne truck on a monthly basis to travel from the Central Coast to Coles Second Bite Distribution Centre, Penrith to collect food.   The food is delivered to three Neighbourhood Centre’s at Kincumber, Green Point and Kariong and then sorted and bagged by Kincumber Rotary Club members.  These three Centres are currently distributing approximately 250 bags of food weekly to those families in need in the local community.

MESSAGE FROM THE ROTARY CLUB OF LAUTOKA 

Over the years we have taken the message of reusable sanitary packs to communities we visit and it has been a huge challenge. Then covid-19 happened. There’s never been a more perfect time to introduce this. This product that was introduced to us by Kincumber Rotary Club member Tina Latham and her wonderful ladies at Avoca Beach through Woven Craft Australia over 5 years ago. Alacoque Welsh your patience and commitment is such a motivation for our Fiji team. All at the right time when the stars align I always say. Its unfortunate the pandemic we are going through but there’s always a silver lining in some other way. DFG kits are reusable, chemical free, economical and environmentally friendly. And now soon to be produced locally creating sustainable income for local business. A Rotary Club of Lautoka project. We are pleased to inform and educate our young ones who are now ready. 

ROTARACT CLUB OF LAUTOKA – SUGAR CITY – FIJI

Melissa and Milika have delivered to 8 staff of South Seas Cruises Staff in and around Nadi area and 8 staff of Nila Resort in Lautoka, Tavakubu and Saweni area as well as 2 families who requested on our fb page in the tourism industry.
Not forgetting staff from Wyndham,Hideaway, Nanuya Island Resort & Island Hoppers

What was touching is how people will walk all the way main road vuda to catch the bus and live inside Tavakubu with no transport provided at night; how to make ends meet now they are willing to work for $50 a week with a wife and 2 children just to make ends meet..
We also engaged a couple who are both hotel workers with 5 children and renting. We certainly have a lot to be thankful for and should certainly appreciate all that we have in these times. That was a moment of reflection for them as explained by Milika. 💙
