Sixty-year-old Home of Com­pas­sion res­i­dent Agnes Lilo has no re­grets in life and her faith in God has kept her go­ing all th­ese years de­spite her dis­abil­ity. Ms Lilo has been liv­ing in the home in Ta­mavua, Suva for a few decades. She thanks the sis­ters and those that have sup­ported and con­trib­ute in the run­ning of the home. “It’s been re­ward­ing to work here for the past three years and I have no re­grets,” said Nalini Singh, Per­sonal Care As­sis­tant at the home. Home of Com­pas­sion was hold­ing their an­nual bazaar yes­ter­day with stalls sell­ing de­li­cious dishes, cakes, bar­be­cue cook­ing, books and clothes. A huge crowd turned out and all pro­ceeds will go to­wards the day to day run­ning of the home. “It’s al­ways great to come back and sup­port this fundrais­ing ev­ery year,” said Maria Tui, a for­mer staff of the home. The Home of Com­pas­sion cel­e­brated its 65th birth­day. The Home has 15 res­i­dents and 18 staff. The long­est serv­ing res­i­dent is 99 year-old Louisa Sales.
