A Better Fiji through Excellence in Foreign Service
7th May, 2012: Hard Rock Café President, Mr. Ken Shimizu and the Managing Director, Mr. Masaharu Oka on Thursday, 7 May 2012 donated ¥1,000,000 to the Fiji Embassy in Tokyo towards the flood victims in Fiji.
The company started its campaign for this worthy cause in mid- May this year after they found out from the Fiji Embassy Tokyo website about the flooding and thus the need to raise funds to assist the victims came about.
Hard Rock Café is a chain of company that has its main office in Florida in the United States and there are 150 branches all over the world, with 7 operating in Japan and 1 in Denarau, Fiji. The company was encouraged to assist and in doing so also in recognition and appreciation of Fiji’s assistance to students from the Tohuku region who were badly affected by last year’s earthquake and tsunami.
His Excellency the Ambassador will be handing over what was collected to the Prime Minister in Fiji next week. (Photo caption: FS Vocea receiving the cheque of ¥1,000,000 from the President of the Hard Rock café Tokyo Mr. Ken Shimizu)
