Cheers fill kids' home

CHRISTMAS cheers filled the air inside Saint Christopher's Home yesterday morning when a group of women prisoners paid a visit there as part of their Christmas carol program.

Made possible through the Yellow Ribbon Campaign, the visit was to celebrate and pass on the message of the season.

The group was welcomed by the sweet voice of Monica Beredasa, 8, who along with other children in the home sang Christmas carols to show their appreciation.

Sister in charge, Kalolaine Tuineau said they were delighted to be visited by the corrections service.

"The message of Christmas is that God gave us his son Jesus," she added.

The women from the corrections service sang Christmas carols for the children — an act that forms a major part of their programme.

Yellow Ribbon co-ordinator, Jale Vosadrau said this was also a time for public engagement

"This is the time to reach out to people spreading the word of love, care, and giving a second chance. We are giving away gifts packs for the children, which contains cards, t-shirts, and sulu which were made by the inmates," Mr Vosadrau said.
