Making a Difference: Fiji Airways Carries Donated Rugby Kit from Hong Kong to Fiji

Fiji Airways recently joined hands with the Hong Kong Rugby Unions Mini Rugby Clubs: USRC Tigers and Flying Kukris, the Kowloon RFC and Hong Kong Scottish to carry 16 boxes (160kgs) of donated rugby kit from Hong Kong to Fiji.

The first consignment left Hong Kong last week and was received by the Fiji Red Cross and Red Crescent Society.

The next batch (also 160kgs) is due to depart HK in the coming weeks.

Ben Ryan, ex Fiji 7s coach and newly crowned village chief, gave a helping hand to receive the donations when he was in Hong Kong.

The brand new kit comprising shorts, jerseys, socks, boots, balls and bags will make its way to rugby loving children in remote villages in Fiji where supplies are scarce but the love of rugby is huge!

Hong Kongs generous rugby community regularly donates to underprivileged youngsters around the region including programmes in Samoa, Cambodia, Laos, and Philippines.

With so many organisations involved, everyone has high hopes for these donations to make a difference in each of the Fijians lives and inspire the next crop of Fijian rugby superstars - be it a set of jerseys for a youth team, a ball for a village to share or a little boys first pair of boots.
