The Fiji Day celebrations yesterday at the Homes of Hope brought hope and joy to the 40 who call it home in Wailoku, Suva.

Heroes like them make Fiji a better place for our children, said Assistant Minister for Women, Children and Poverty Alleviation Veena Bhatnagar who handed over gifts to assist with the management of the home.

“This year’s celebration is targeting the younger generation because you are the key to having a more unified country tomorrow,” she said.

“It is through instilling understanding and mutual respect from a young age that one can aspire to building a better country.”

Homes of Hope founder Lynnie Roche said that the home had been celebrating Fiji Day since its establishment in 1997 and has been grateful for the continuous support of the people of Fiji and Government.

“Homes of Hope really needs the support of Fiji for it to continue,” Ms Roche said.

Minister Bhatnagar wished everyone a happy and blessed Fiji Day and thanked the staff for their hard work.

The theme for this year’s celebration is ‘A progressive and sustainable Fiji for all’. Edited by Ranoba Baoa
