Youths visit elderly

Mere Naleba
Sunday, February 09, 2014

RESIDENTS of Father Law Home at Veisari in Lami yesterday had the chance to celebrate the Chinese new year after they were paid a visit by the Fiji Chinese Youths Group as well as its patron Jenny Seeto.

The 25 residents at the home for elderly people, the Catholic nuns at the home and members of the public living in the neighbouring communities got the chance to witness the lion dance.

"We also presented the residents with groceries and other items which include food-stuff, cleaning materials and bedding," Mrs Seeto said.

"It was a learning experience for the youths.

"This is our way of educating them to be appreciative of life.

"The residents were happy to see the lion dance."

Mrs Seeto said in return, one of the three Chinese nationals residing at the home, Kenneth Chung, with the help of the home's head nun Sister Mere fed the lion with a red packet containing lettuce as lettuce symbolises growth, development, prosperity and life.

"Although there are only three nationals (Chinese) at the home, we have not stopped trying to assist in whatever ways we can," she said.
