Leaving in a home for more than 40 years may not sound soothing to some, but not for a resident of Chanel Home of Compassion Agnes Lilo.

Ms Lilo, 56, was happy that the Home had been upgraded to help them live peacefully.

The Japanese Ambassador to Fiji, Takuji Hanatani, yesterday handed over the Home’s new dining hall and special care unit.

“I am indeed grateful to our congregational leader, the sisters and most importantly, the ambassador of Japan for the kind assistance.

“Without their support we cannot progress. The workers here are provided with good facilities since they are looking after us.”

“For us who were born with disability should be grateful for whatever the situation we are given. Here in the home we never feel lonely, thanks to the love and support so we just take one day at a time and learn to progress and move forward.

“My family do the best they can to come and visit me, but we need to be thankful to whoever is supporting us,” she said.
