Hearts for the needy

RESIDENTS of the Navakai Hart Home in Nadi were treated to a day of fun and entertainment this week when they were visited by international volunteers from Projects Abroad Fiji.

Projects Abroad Fiji information co-ordinator Tagimeucia Koroivuki said they were given a chance to visit the 20 families who called the settlement home as part of their community work during their stay in the country.

"Projects Abroad volunteers and staff gave hampers of food, school books for the children and other necessities to help them in the beginning of the year," Mrs Koroivuki said.

"The volunteers had also purchased handicrafts and Fijian fans from the women who were absolutely grateful for the support.

"The Fiji Council of Churches had formed this particular Hart to assist the very low income earners in their housing and so far, it has helped enormously for these families in their daily living.

"After the giveaways, the volunteers were taken on a tour around the village and were entertained with a meke (dance) by the women."

Mrs Koroivuki said most of the families found it hard to find a source of income.

"While some do have jobs, the rest resort to making handicrafts and selling root crops to help sustain their livelihoods."
