CHERISHED moments and good old tales were part of the Babasiga Ashram family day as residents met their loved ones and friends.

As the residents ended their celebration of the Fiji Senior Citizens week in Labasa yesterday, family members and guests were reminded to always cherish the contribution of these elderly citizens.

Ashram Care co-ordinator Sirino Rakabi said the theme of the celebration, “Celebrating Older Human Rights Champions” proved to everyone that senior citizens contributed to national development.

“These senior citizens have contributed in many ways to the development of the nation and also to developing the human rights we enjoy today,” he said.

“So they should always be cherished and loved and never forgotten because their various contributions have also shaped our nation.

“This family day was organised to bring family members and friends to the ashram to spend time with their loved ones.”

Mr Rakabi said the family day was an opportunity to reconnect families as well because some live far from Labasa and can’t travel here frequently to visit their loved ones living in the home.

The celebration included entertainment from John Kado.
