MORE than 200 senior citizens from 10 villages in Rewa were part of the Rewa Senior Citizens Day at Lomanikoro in Rewa on Thursday.

The Rewa Golden Oldies Trust marked the occasion by inviting all senior citizens from 10 villages in Rewa to be part of the celebration.

The Golden Oldies Trust also wanted to thank the senior citizens for their contribution to the development of Rewa in the past by offering them Christmas presents and a meal.

Rewa Golden Oldies Club member Fauoro Titifanua said the celebration was important to the senior citizens because it gave them a chance to celebrate with close family and friends.

Ms Titifanua said they organised the event because of the increasing number of elderly people now residing in the village after retiring from active service and employment.

"The event is being funded by donations in cash and kind from friends and relatives and a major run-a-thon around Viti Levu last month," Ms Titifanua said.

She said a social welfare information session and an elderly food and nutrition program with an awareness display by the Fiji National Fire Authority were provided at the event.
