Children at schools in the flood-affected western part of Fiji's main island of Viti Levu are getting free lunches.

Students at 25 schools in the Nadi and Lautoka area were reportedly not coming to school because their families did not have enough food.

The Hare Krishna organisation is providing free cooked lunches for the schoolchildren. Other NGOs are also working  to help those affected by the flooding.

The Hindu religious organisation's spokesman says their efforts to help people will continue for several weeks to come.

Presenter: Bruce Hill

Speaker: Hare Krishna Fiji spokesman, Dr Krishna Maharaj
