Parents and students from a number of schools in the Eastern and Central Division now have a reason to smile as they will be provided free school supplies.
This has been confirmed by Action for Better Community Spokesperson Rajendra Kumar who says 10 schools will benefit from this donation.
Kumar says students of the 10 schools will be provided with school bags, exercise books and other stationery from next Monday.
He says the donation is to assist families who have been affected by TC Winston and the recent Tropical Depression.
Kumar says a total of $45,000 has been used to make this initiative possible.
The schools that will be assisted are Lomaivuna Primary, Muaniweni Primary, Muaniweni College, Shantiniketan School, Nakorosule District School, Naqani District School, Nawaisomo Primary, Vunidawa Primary, Naitasiri Primary and the Vunidawa District School.
