Residents of the Babasiga Ashram in Labasa Branch received Diwali sweets and food from 30 staff members of NewWorld Supermarket Labasa yesterday.
Dhan Lakshmi, a resident of the Ashram was in tears when asked how she felt about the visitation.
“Diwali is a joyous and beautiful festival and of course we all wish to spend time with our family,” Ms Lakshmi said.
“Unfortunately, due to backbone illness, I have been staying in this home in a wheelchair for many years and I feel bad that I can’t eat my own homemade sweets.
“However, seeing this large crowd, I enjoyed a moment of Diwali festival’s spirit of togetherness.”
Branch manager Dhiren Chand said for three years the company had showered Diwali gifts to the residents.
“They all attended the special morning pooja (prayer) at the supermarket and sacrificed their time to spend few moments with the residents.
“My staff prepared homemade sweets and we gathered groceries from the supermarket to offer them as gifts.
“Such an activity is part of our community and we are honoured to spend time with families who have no one and Babasiga Ashram is a place we always choose to be on Diwali.”
