GRATITUDE poured from the hearts of elders at the Valelevu Housing Assistance and Relief Trust homes as their Christmas came early this year, thanks to a business house on Friday.

The Vodafone ATH Foundation in conjunction with the Fiji Council of Social Services (FCOSS) National Volunteer centre visited the HART homes with food packs for the residents.

ATH project officer Milika Baukitoga, said it was a good time to join hands and help the people in the HART community during these hard times to have a merry Christmas.

"This is one way of showing appreciation and giving a helping hand," she said.

"I know the ups and downs these people face and it is a great feeling to be able to bring smiles to their faces especially during Christmas."

HART resident Litiana Railala, who spoke on behalf of all residents, had tears in her eyes when she expressed her appreciation.

"Thank you very much for thinking of us.

"You may know that we don't have enough money but you have come here and shown us so much love and we are very grateful," she said.

Ms Baukitoga said the food packs included powdered milk, noodles, fruit cake, split peas, tinned stuff and many other things.
