FNPF Chief Executive Officer Viliame Vodonaivalu commended Home & Living, Rosie Tours and the myFNPF Centre Nadi Food Court tenants for coming on board, adding that such events reflect the commitment by corporate organizations and businesses to uplift those that are less fortunate in society.
“While we celebrate the lives of our mothers, we also remember those that have endured challenges due to circumstances that are beyond their control.”
“We are humbled to be able to collaborate with our partners today. Events such as Mother’s Day often bring out the spirit of community and we are indeed blessed to be able to contribute a small part towards making the day an enjoyable one for these mothers and their children,” said Mr. Vodonaivalu.
