Fiji Sun Team Treats Home Residents

Priceless smiles adorned the timeless faces of the 43 residents of the Golden Age Home in Lautoka as they tucked into Sunday lunch, compliments of the Fiji Sun west staff yesterday.

The Fiji Sun team, from offices in Nadi and Lautoka, said they were privileged to have an opportunity to talk to the residents after enjoying their lunch, which consisted of chicken curry, roti, cabbage, salad, pawpaw and banana slices and fruit juice.

The 13-member Fiji Sun team consisted of staff from the administration, editorial, sales and circulation departments.

47-year-old Laisa Tubevu said she was grateful for the new family she had found at the home since her arrival in 2012.

“Being here is just like being at home and I have found a new family here and relentless service provided to us by the hardworking staff,” she said.

“I’m also thankful that the staff gave their time to come and visit us and provide us with this meal and I do hope to see them again.”

Mrs Tubevu is originally from Nadi and worked at the Tanoa Skylodge, Club Fiji resort and later at the Rainbow Textile in Nadi. She said staying at the Golden Age Home was her personal decision.

“When my leg was amputated I realised that I didn’t want to burden my family, so I came to the Golden Age Home. I have only one son and he calls me, but he has never visited me,” Mrs Tubevu said.

“I’m not downhearted when I think of what I have gone through because I’m thankful for this new family that I have been blessed with.”

Meanwhile, Fiji Sun West Manager Sales Anaseini Qio said the team was happy to offer their time and services wholeheartedly.

Ms Qio said this was not the last visit for the team because they have forged a bond of friendship and compassion with the residents.
