CHILDREN of Lomani Au Home in Savusavu had a reason to smile when officials of Vinod Patel & Company Limited in Labasa recently arrived at their doorstep with loads of gifts.

The gifts included foodstuff, stationery and toiletries to name a few.

Labasa branch manager Umesh Prasad yesterday said they came to know of the home's existence when officials came to buy materials from them.

"Thereafter, we developed a relationship with the officials and we later decided for a donation," he said.

"We gave them school bags, stationery, groceries and also provided them with lovo for lunch. There are seven children, the youngest is two months-old and the eldest is 15."
