Elderly enjoy visit

WHILE most families will gather to celebrate Mother's Day at home today, the residents of the Golden Age home in Natabua enjoyed it a day earlier with the management and staff of Vijendra's Tailoring Centre in Lautoka.

Employee Shrada Singh said she was motivated to do something for the elderly.

"What could be worse than celebrating Mother's Day without family around you?" the 22-year-old said.

"We decided to become family for the aged women at the home just for this special day.

"If we can make them smile and share some food with them, I believe that we are doing God's work."

Ms Singh said doing charity work was not a burden but a duty that all people should undertake.
