Nazim Shah, 47, is one of many people who support the project and was at the festival last night.
“I know that these people have done wrong but what is done cannot be undone and we need to embrace them with forgiveness,” Mr Shah said.
Mr Shah owns Jim’s Service station in Labasa town and has been a businessman for the past two years now. He showed his support in the yellow ribbon tent at the Vodafone Festival of the Friendly North.
“I support the project by providing refreshments at the yellow ribbon tent and putting up the lights and a small platform or stage for performances. I want to help out in any way possible," he said.
He was glad to see that other companies like Punja and Sons, Flour Mills of Fiji, C.J Patel and Manubhai are supporting the project.
“When I heard that there was going to be a yellow ribbon tent at the festival I tried to get people involved and to sponsor the tent each night of the festival," he said.
In the next few years Mr Shah hopes to continue with his business but also make people more aware of the Yellow Ribbon Project and relate his story about forgiveness.
