THE Banaban Child Welfare was the first to receive assistance from the Vodafone ATH Fiji Foundation Corporate Philanthropy program in Labasa last week.
The organisation received a computer from the Rotary Club of Labasa for office work.
Welfare secretary Terikano Takesau said the computer would assist in the professional enhancement of the Banaban Child Welfare Charity and enable better networking and communication.
"We have only one computer which is at the community library and for public use," Ms Takesau said.
"Our office in Rabi lacks office equipment and the computer is the first of the technology.
"We also need a camera and Internet connection. At the moment, we are using personal equipment to carry out our work."
Club president Jagat Prasad said the concern was highlighted during a presentation where the Banaban organisation highlighted difficulties faced with office work.
Two bags of clothes were also given to the Lions Club of Labasa for underprivileged children on Rabi.
The clothes were given to the Banaban Child Welfare for distribution.
Vodafone ATH Fiji Foundation executive Ambalika Kutty said the gifts were the greatest spin-off for their first meeting.
