Denarau Island. Nadi, Fiji - May 12, 2020 – Solia Lesu by Marriott foundation, which is in its third week of inception has just finished their sixth meal delivery run at the Loloma Home & Care Centre. Solia Lesu, which means to give back is part of an initiative by Marriott International Fiji involving its five Fiji properties, namely the Westin Denarau Fiji Resort & Spa, Sheraton Fiji Resort, Sheraton Denarau Villas, Sheraton Tokoriki and Marriott Momi Bay Fiji. The foundation delivered packs of cooked meals, bread, milk and linen consisting of bed sheets, bath towels, pillowcases and hand towels. The residents at the Loloma home were appreciative and thankful towards the gesture.
“The support for the foundation has been overwhelming with our associates opting to be involved in one way or another including our business partners that have shown interest” stated Farrah Shazleen, Cluster Director of Human Resources, Marriott International Fiji Resorts “The drive has only been successful with teamwork and it is rewarding to see the smiles it brings onto people’s faces. Their emotions are just priceless and continue to empower you to do more. During these stressful times, looking at the appreciative faces gives us a certain level of hope and contentment. At Marriott International, one of our core objectives is not only to take care of our associates and guests but also the communities we live in.”
The project continues to strongly steer forward and is calling on support from individuals and business partners to collaborate as food deliveries are planned for the coming weeks to areas including greater Lautoka.
