The decentralization of services will be one of the major focus of the Fiji Disabled Peoples Federation this year.
President, Joshko Wakaniyasi, says people with disabilities live around the country and having one office in Suva is not helping them.
Wakaniyasi says by decentralizing services they will be able to assist members in a timely manner especially during times of uncertainties.
“We now need to decentralize our systems and that decentralization is not cheap, it’s expensive. To be based in Labasa, we need to be renting, we have teams on the ground, and we plan to have it in Labasa and in Ba because Ba can look after Nadi, Lautoka, Tavua and Rakiraki.”
The Fiji Disabled Peoples Federation’s lone office is currently situated at the Fiji National Council for Disabled Persons Complex in Brown Street, Suva.
