The AG thanked the companies for the donations and emphasised the growing interest in the Government’s ‘Adopt a School’ program.

SAYED-KHAIYUM: “Dulux and Pacific Coatings Limited have made a generous donation to the Fijian people as we begin the massive task of rebuilding and restoring Fiji. We call on all companies and organisations that are able to do the same to do so and we can together build Fiji back better and stronger than before.”

“These materials will directly benefit our ‘Adopt a School’ program, which has received positive responses from all around the world from Governments, organisations and individuals who want to help put Fijian students back in the classroom.”
