A timely present

CHILDREN of the Mahaffy Girls Home and the Dilkusha Home were given a reason to smile during the new year's festivities when the Vodafone Foundation delivered technological goodies to them.

The foundation handed three tablets, a Wifi device and free internet connection as presents for the year.

Dilkusha Deaconess Litia Leba said the gift was timely

Guardian Ruci Tuwai acknowledged the foundation for the gifts.

"We are really thankful to the foundation as we have children going to secondary school and this will allow them to explore the IT realm, learn more and provide them the opportunity to be on par with the rest of the world," she said.

Foundation executive Ambalika Devi said they understood some could not afford the luxuries of modern day technology and the aim was to ensure they were not left out.
