image Written By : ARIETA VAKASUKAWAQA. The children of Dilkhusa Home, an orphanage in Nausori, received a special New Year present yesterday.
They were donated their new dormitories or sleeping quarters.
The children happily toured their new homes yesterday which replaced dorms that were destroyed in a fire last month.
Renovation works to their new dormitories were funded by Colonial Bank.
Bank Chief Financial Officer, Michael Collins, said they were honoured to help the children.
“An executive meeting was conducted where we were informed about the fire. We made plans on how to help the children at the home.
“We were also told that the children were sheltering in their hall.
“We conducted appeals to raise money and we thank everyone who contributed. Response was overwhelming.
“Our contractors were dedicated in helping these children despite Cyclone Mick. We managed to get completed on time” “We worked hard to complete the project and I thank the staff of Colonial, sponsors and everyone who helped, for a job well done,” he said.
Dilkhusa Home Senior Superintendent, Deaconess Olivia Nataniela, thanked the bank for its support.
“I thank the Lord for providing a good Samaritan to come and help the children during this festive season.
“The dormorities were also in need of upgrading and we finally received them after 20 years of waiting.
“This is also one of the best gifts for the children for the New Year,” she added.
She said the home has completed three projects in its upgrading project.
