It was a blissful day for 33 children at the Dilkusha Methodist Children’s Home at Davuilevu, Nausori, when they had a special visit from Fiji National University (FNU) Human Resource Department staff and Miss Tebara Carnival, Sheryl Mudaliar last Saturday.

Home superintendent Deaconess Leba Laveti said the children were blessed to be visited by the group.

There are 33 children in the home – the youngest is a 10 month-old-baby and the eldest is 23 years old.

“The home is always filled with joy, fun and laughter,” Deaconess Laveti said.

“We are really thankful for the gesture shown by both and it is our prayer that the Almighty will bless them for spending their wealth and time with our children here,” she said.

FNU acting vice-chancellor, Professor Ian Rouse and his wife Caroline were also part of the visit.

Deaconess Laveti said the group spent time with the children and also cook them lunch.

“Despite the bad weather, they managed to help us do the chores around the home compound, helped the matrons babysit the children and then they cooked a delicious lunch for the children where everybody ate and enjoyed themselves,” she said.

FNU Human Resource Department manager recruitment, Vimal Vikash said their visit was an initiative to uphold corporate social responsibility.

“Our team decided to organise lunch for children at the home and we have also helped in cleaning, the staff also took time out to entertain the children with kids toys and many more activities with the contribution of all the staff members.

“This doesn’t end here. We have plans to visit other homes around Suva to help the needy and destitute,” he said

Deaconess Laveti said Miss Mudaliar’s family also cooked lunch for the children.

“We want to give our heartfelt thanks to the reigning Miss Tebara, Sheryl Mudaliar and her family for the kind gesture.

“There is no riches with us to show her our appreciation, but there is one thing we have is that it is our prayers that God will give her the strength to face the odds as she is preparing herself for the Miss Fiji Pageant – our blessings are with her,” she said.

Miss Mudaliar said it was a privilege to give back to the community after her win.
