More than two hundred children from different walks of life were on cloud nine after receiving their Milo rugby pack from Rugby Academy Fiji.

Founder Seremai Bai said 150 packs were sent to some communities and villages in the interior of Labasa.

Eighty packs were given to the children of Nadali and another 50 packs would be sent to the children of Daliconi Village in Vanuabalavu, Lau,” he said.

Mr Bai said the Milo rugby packs were mostly for the less fortunate children in the maritime islands and Northern Division.

“It was always a vision to reach out and also creating hope for the less fortunate,” he said.

He said the Rugby Academy Fiji had been running online rugby sessions every Wednesdays and Fridays.

“We currently have 300 children that participate in the Milo online clinic. The pandemic has allowed me to reach to many young aspiring rugby enthusiasts. This online program is to encourage children to stay active, engaged and have something to do with friends and families within their own bubbles during this difficult time”.

Mr Bai acknowledged Nestle MILO for their three-year partnership which has enable a community outreach especially at the grassroots level.

“My future project is to try and build a library in villages that don’t have any.”
