Jope Tokalau­vere (Fiji Blue), Fiji Black Pita Ratukana (Fiji Black) and Mak­iti Raratabu (Fiji White) were among mem­bers of the Ki­noya Vol­ley­ball As­so­ci­a­tion who cleaned up the Fa­ther Law Home in Lami yes­ter­day. “This is another step up to our prepa­ra­tion and we are thank­ful to our team man­age­ment for re­leas­ing us to help the se­nior ci­ti­zens of our com­mu­nity.

“This is the first time for me to come out from my Ki­noya com­mu­nity to help a dif­fer­ent com­mu­nity,” Tokalau­vere said. The Taci, Noco, Rewa na­tive was grate­ful to be in­volved in a wor­thy cause. “We clean their com­pound, their rooms and to see them smil­ing is most re­ward­ing for us,” he added. Na­co­moto, Naceva, Ka­davu na­tive Ratukana ac­knowl­edges God for giv­ing them the op­por­tu­nity to reach out to the elderly. “We are all from the Ki­noya com­mu­nity and I want to thank God for giv­ing us this chance. “We are also set­ting good ex­am­ples to our younger broth­ers in Ki­noya,”Ratukana said. Raratabu be­lieves unity is what will take Fiji through dur­ing the World Cup qual­i­fier.

“I feel great af­ter vis­it­ing these se­niors ci­ti­zens and I want to thank my youth group from Ki­noya for coming in as one fam­ily and do­ing this to­gether,” Raratabu said. Not only did the youth group cleaned up at Fa­ther Law home but they also do­nated a wash­ing ma­chine. “We started from our com­mu­nity in Ki­noya be­fore reach­ing out to other com­mu­ni­ties and our next tar­get would be the wid­owed fam­i­lies,” or­gan­iser Rosa Dal­i­tuicama said.
