Salvation Army Helps Women

A Salvation Army mini-show attracted women in Labasa  to the church premises.
The show which was open to women of other denominations and free of charge, showcased their handicraft and household items produced by women.

Captain Limaina Turaga, leader of the Salvation Army Women’s Group, Labasa Branch, said a lot of women attended the event.
“This show is a result of our weekly meeting where we learn how to sew and make beautiful household handicraft,” Captain Turaga said.

“As the pastor’s wife and a Salvation Army officer, it gives me great pleasure to help these women grow spiritually and financially,” Mrs Turaga said.

“Women learn more and are now capable of supporting themselves and their families.”

Meanwhile, productive member Adi Lolo Marayawa shared her joy to do something she loves and in a more fruitful way.

“My husband is an engineer at the Telecom Fiji Limited (TFL) Labasa Branch, but we find it fruitful when I make handicraft to sell,” Mrs Marayawa said.

“Especially since the festive season is approaching. That is when I get to help my family and the extended families as well because as iTaukei women, we show our cheerful spirit by giving tokens to our relatives back in the village.

“I encourage women to join these kinds of groups because even though we have less than 20 members, we still learn a lot more,” she said.
