THE Saint Vincent de Paul Home on Suva's Brown St received 26 new vinyl-covered mattresses for its residents yesterday.

The mattresses, which cost about $5000, were bought by a group from Australia which frequently helps the home.

"These mattresses will really help residents of the home feel loved and cared for," said home administrator Veronica Mulu.

"It will make them sleep more comfortably as well as assist the staff with sanitation and caring for the residents."

Ms Mulu said they would welcome assistance for pillows, linen and blankets.

"Basically, anything that goes with a bed. We would love for the residents to have new pillows, linen and blankets too.

"Even if they contribute their valuable time, that is enough for us."
