PPSEAWA Fiji's Canteen COVID Relief Project

Release Date: 
Tuesday, 20 April, 2021

PPSEAWA Fiji received a COVID-19 Relief Grant from PPSEAWA International in October 2020. Rural village women have been especially affected by lockdown measures due to the pandemic, so to reduce long distance travel to town for shopping, we set up a Canteen in a local village. The Canteen provides small food items, and household goods like toiletries and laundry supplies.

Update 6 months later: This small rural community continues to face challenges due to the loss of jobs by menfolk and the slow return to marketing activities for the women so we continue to operate the Canteen.
