Over 70 kids from the school were affected by the accident, and tragically, one student lost a limb.

The Drua players visited the students following their counseling session today.

Tawake expresses his memory of the accident and his joy at seeing the children smiling today.

“I remember that very well, few of us Drua boys got together and visited them at the Lautoka hospital, seven months later to put a smile on their faces and to brighten their days, you know I’m really grateful for that”.

As part of the visit, over 30 students received free tickets to watch the upcoming Drua match against the Crusaders in the Shop N Save Super Rugby Pacific competition.

This visit highlights the Drua and Anchor’s commitment to supporting the Fijian community and bringing joy to those in need.

The match will be played in Lautoka on Saturday at 1:05 PM and will be broadcasted live on the FBC Sports HD channel.
