IN the midst of their poverty, they can still smile, share jokes and laugh out loudly brightening the dull atmosphere inside their small home.
Suren Prasad and his children are financially challenged.
But despite the challenges of not affording a decent life, Sheetal, Kirtika, Sheenal and Rishap Prasad simply enjoy life.
Even in an unfurnished home, these primary school students enjoy the comfort of their home and their smiles say it all.
When The Fiji Times team visited their home at Tiri in Wailevu, Labasa, the children were more than happy to escort the reporters inside their home.
"Come here to the kitchen. We have a lot of bananas here to eat. You want some for lunch?" asked Sheetal.
And as she led the team towards the kitchen through the rooms that were filled with clothes, her younger brother Rishap played on the bed with his two other sisters.
Not looking into the direction of her siblings who were laughing from one corner of the room, Sheetal led the team outside and started packing the bananas in her bag.
"This will be for our lunch and it will be enough for us all," she said as she continued packing.
Their mum Swaran Lata described her children as joyful kids who love life.
"Even though I wish I could provide better for my children, seeing them smile and enjoy each other's company gives me much satisfaction," she said.
"Sometimes, when we don't have enough food at home, they don't fight over the amount of food given to them but they share and the girls always make sure that their younger siblings have enough to eat."
