Villagers of Vunidogoloa, Cakaudrove, believe in the unseen power of God said the village’s headman, Sailosi Raimotu, when asked how they were coping with life in their new village site.
The villagers believed it was through fasting and consistent praying that they have access to and enjoy things they have now, he said, adding they would continue to do so.
Today thirty families are enjoying the services they did not have access to at their old village site.
This week the villagers were watching the Hong Kong Sevens games televised live on Sky Pacific in one of the homes.
TV was something they did not have access to before.
Mr Raimotu could not explain in words how the villagers were enjoying living in their relocated site but the sparkle in his eyes said otherwise.
He explained that no one was living now at the old village site although a few houses remained standing there.
“Women enjoy doing their daily chores as they have access to electricity, which made their lives easier.”
The village’s 32 schoolchildren now ride buses to school whereas in the past they walked to school.
They’ve planted pineapples and dalo and have eight fish ponds.
However, V-drains, footpaths, a community hall and a church are yet to be added as final touches to the new site.
Mr Raimotu said they’ve also planned to build a nursery for dakua and vesi seedlings as some of these trees were cut down when building the thirty new homes.
