Fiji Sun - - Suncity - SELITA BOLANAVANUA

Staff mem­bers of Fiji Meat In­dus­try Board (FMIB) took time off their busy work sched­ule yes­ter­day to do some char­ity work at the St Christo­pher’s Home in Nakasi, Nas­inu. Li­vai Mar­avou said they re­cently formed a so­cial club at FMIB, with him be­ing elected pres­i­dent. Their main aim is to en­cour­age staff mem­bers to take part in char­ity work and build up work re­la­tions and team work within their or­gan­i­sa­tion. “We came here along with our grass cut­ters, knives and rakes to clean up the whole com­pound, and this is the first time we are do­ing this,” Mr Mar­avou said. “I am re­ally pleased with the par­tic­i­pa­tion of the staff and their con­tri­bu­tion to­day.

“This re­ally paints a good pic­ture of team­work. “This is some­thing the FMIB Staff will be do­ing for our chil­dren in homes, and this is the be­gin­ning of it.” The FMIB staff plans to visit the Dilkusha Chil­dren’s Home next.

Sis­ter Kalo­laine Tuineau, who is in charge of the home, said: “St Christo­pher’s Home is re­ally blessed with char­ity works and we thank God for the dif­fer­ent or­gan­i­sa­tion and par­tic­u­larly to­day to the FMIB staff for clean­ing the com­pound and mak­ing sure that the chil­dren’s home is clean. St Christo­pher’s Home ac­com­mo­dates 25 chil­dren. The home was es­tab­lished in 1968 to ad­vance ed­u­ca­tion, health and wel­fare of chil­dren in the coun­try. Edited by Naisa Koroi
