Contestants visit sick children

THE Princesses and Princes contestants of the 2014 Vodafone Hibiscus Festival left smiles on patients faces at the CWM Hospital's pediatric ward yesterday marking the start of their community work.

The 20 contestants brought good cheer and happiness to the patients by giving them toys. They also sang songs before they left.

Princess contestant Miss Tuvalu Tuliana Sarah Seveikau said she was happy with their visit at the hospital.

"I just wanted to bring a smile to the children's faces," she said.

Contestant co-ordinator Noe Nasario said the aim of the visit was to impart blessings to the patients.

"We also want the contestants to know that there are other children out there who do not have the same opportunity as them, those who are sick and need their blessing," Mr Nasario said.

"The aim is to share the blessing that we have to the children at the hospital hoping that it will bring a smile on their faces."

Hibiscus Event Group public relations manager Lice Movono-Rova said yesterday's activity was part and parcel of the festival program — an activity that impacted positively on the public.

"At the same time, the activity leaves the contestants with lessons that will help them be positive change agents in their own communities," Mrs Movono-Rova said.
