Sharing the warm spirit of Christmas is what makes this time of the year a special one which many look forward to.

This were the sentiments of 33 residents of Babasiga Ashram in Labasa whom were delighted to have been treated to a special BBQ Christmas lunch from the Ministry of Women, Children and Poverty Alleviation.

For 60-year-old Surja Devi, who has lived in the Ashram for over 30 years, said she felt special for receiving such a treat for Christmas.

Ninety one-year-old Durga Prasad, who is the oldest among the residents, said he was happy to receive whatever the Ashram provided because it was always good.

“I don’t have any families in Fiji, my two sons died and I have three grandchildren who are staying in overseas,” he said.

Originally from Somosomo, Taveuni Island, Mr Prasad said he was always felt happy having people visiting him and the other residents.

Babasiga Ashram welfare officer Neha Prasad said the residents were thankful to have five social welfare officers preparing BBQ lunch for the residents.
