“THE Cabinet has approved the establishment of a committee to raise funds for the Australian bush-fires.
“The Committee is headed by Dr Derek Mane, Deputy Secretary to the Prime Minister.
“An initial meeting for this fundraising initiative was held Tuesday this week with few representatives from HCC and Civil Society organisations.
“It was agreed during that meeting that the way forward is for a collaborative effort to help our friend Australia currently devastated by the bush-fires.
“Reports confirmed that the bush-fires started in September last year, and at the current rate it is predicted to continue for few more months.
“Commenting about the fundraising activities, Mane said they have agreed on two major Corporate Dinners, the first on January 16th and another towards the end of the month.
"The fundraising activities will be launched on the 16th together with the corporate dinner and fundraising events will run until March 7th, a total of 2 months", Dr. Derek said.”
