Nineteen-year-old Palvi Chand, a resident of the Dilkusha Children’s Home, in Nausori, wants to become a Veterinary physician.

She has been residing at the Dilkusha Children’s Home for the last six years and always looks forward to celebrating the festive season with the home’s other residents.

“At first when I came to the Dilkusha Children’s Home, it was very difficult for me to adapt to the environment and I missed my home and parents so much.

“But every resident of the Dilkusha Children’s Home are now my family and I enjoy my every day with them,” she said.

She was a student at Dilkusha Methodist High School and has successfully passed her Fiji Year 13 Certificate Examination.

“Every year, I look forward to Christmas and love to celebrate it with my younger brothers and sisters at the home.

“Every year we do something different in Christmas,” she said.

There are currently 39 residents at the Dilkusha Children’s Home. The oldest is a 24-year-old and the youngest is eight-months-old.

The eight-month-old baby came to the Home last week.

The Home superintendent Leba Laveti was thankful for the gifts and contributions given to the residents.

Last year when the children of the Dilkusha Children’s Home were singing Christmas carols at Ratu Cakobau Park Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama asked what they wanted for Christmas.

A young girl said that they would like to get a mini bus for their home to take them around. The PM got them one.

“The minibus turned one year old yesterday (December, 24) and the children visited many places in the bus during Christmas,” Ms Laveti said.

“Compared to every year, this year during Christmas the children received many gifts and many people came to visit them.”
