The donation was made possible by the collective effort of the LTA staff who raised funds by selling their annual leave to the company.

Mr Tuinaceva said that he was proud of the employees’ selfless act of service.

This is a milestone for the Authority and I’m extremely proud of my staff because they have made a huge sacrifice by giving away their well-earned leave days to help those who have been badly affected by the cyclone

Our staff do not have much themselves and some have even lost everything they had during the cyclone, and yet they showed kindness and put others before themselves – this is simply amazing.”

The AG thanked the LTA for their contribution and lauded the LTA staff for their generous contribution.

The LTA staff members have stepped up in a big way for those Fijians suffering in the aftermath of TC Winton.

We are grateful to receive this contribution towards the Fijian Government’s vital work rebuilding Fiji and restoring the lives of the Fijian people.
