Fiji Fashion Week Managing Director, Ellen Whippy Knight says they are overwhelmed by the support of the people who turned out in numbers yesterday.

Home Superintendent, Deaconess Leba Laveti says they are always looking forward to improving the standard of living for the children so this contribution will help them fulfill their wishes.
