Rehab for the homeless

Siteri Sauvakacolo
Monday, August 04, 2014

THE Church of the Nazarene believes beggars and homeless people who would be brought into its rehabilitation centre need the feeling of being loved and cared for before they are introduced to training and workshops.

Church district superintendent Reverend Kafoa Muaror said a lot of these people came in with low self-esteem and had the feeling of being unloved.

He said 12 to 15 beggars would be rehabilitated in Colo-i-Suva once renovation works were completed early next month.

"A lot of these preliminary phases are to address this so that they feel they are being loved and cared for — the very fundamental phase," Mr Muaror said.

"After this then we will look at their strength like sewing, farming and basic training which will be provided so when they go back to their communities they can have small farms or establish ideas which would impact their lives in a meaningful way," said Mr Muaror.
