FIJI Electricity Authority staff members in Labasa sacrificed their lunch hour yesterday to visit and provide lunch to senior residents of the Babasiga Ashram.
The ashram's oldest resident, Durga Prasad, said the 28 residents were grateful to the FEA personnel and other good Samaritans who visited them in the past.
Born in 1925, Mr Prasad has spent the past 11 years in the ashram after his family members moved overseas.
"I can only walk around now with support and so far, life here has been good especially with the support and care we get from the staff in the home," he said.
"These sorts of visits are always special to us because it shows that we are still being cared for."
Babasiga Ashram health welfare officer Neha Prasad said residents were often those who had no family members to look after them.
Meanwhile, the FEA team spokesman Sheik Haidar said the visit yesterday was part of their corporate responsibility.
"It is also a team-bonding exercise that creates a closer network between workers and also takes our mind off the regular routine for a while," he said.
