Irish couple pay for 3

Maciu Malo
Sunday, January 12, 2014

BORN in Lautoka, 64-year-old Roni Kermode says she will never forget Fiji as long as she lives.

And reaffirming her love and affection for the country, together with her husband Ossey, they are one of several sponsors of the less fortunate children in Fiji. The couple is sponsoring three children through the Fiji Kids organisation.

The couple reside in Ireland but a special feeling about Fiji prompted their decision to sponsor children here.

"Fiji is where my heart is," she said.

"We don't have any children but we do now as we are sponsoring three children from the same family.

"Education is so crucial and important for this country and I want to play a part and make a difference.

"I love sponsoring these kids and this is the third year and we want to be involved with this program as long as we live," she added.
