Knickers Needed Urgently

All Rotarians are being asked to donate a pair of boys or girls knickers aged for 2-4-year olds to the Fiji Squatters Camp Pre Schools.  Cost is very low, about $5 to buy a 5-pack from K-Mart or The Warehouse.  These children’s families have come to Suva to look for work and to give their children an education and they arrive with nothing and there are 4 of these camps in Suva alone.  The Montesouri teachers volunteer their time 3 days a week to teach these children through play and Rotary has donated mobile teaching kits and transportation costs.  These teachers have asked for underwear to help encourage good sanitation and hygiene behaviour.  DG Malini will take the items back to Fiji, or you can donate $5 instead and all the money will go to buy underwear.  Your donations can be left with Jacqui at the Stamford on Mondays or please contact her, to organise dropping off clothing or money to her office in Takapuna.
