Fiji Development Bank officers from the Western Division took time out of their busy schedule on Friday to visit children at the Treasure Home in Nadi.

As a part of their community outreach programme they gave food and gifts to create a Christmas spirit in the home.

FDB Lautoka manager relationship & sales Suresh Chand said they were a combined team with representatives from Rakiraki, Ba, Lautoka, Nadi and Sigatoka.

“For the Christmas season the team west decided to collect some money and visit charitable organisations as part of our strategic plan,” he said.

“We bought some groceries, gifts and goodies, which was presented to these children, who are away from their home. They face many challengers, but they will need to work hard and build a better life for themselves.

“The FDB team wished everyone at the home a merry Christmas and hope that 2018 is a greater year, especially for the children.”

Treasure Home supervisor Luisa Salacaucau said the children were blessed to have visitors during Christmas.

“We receive a lot of gifts and presents from visitors during Christmas and to see the children’s  reaction every time is truly very inspiring,” she said.

“I have been at the home since it opened in 2000, so these children are special to me, and it’s good to know people do care for them.”

Also paying a visit were women from the Covenant Evangelical Church in Nausori.

A member of the group Vetinia Nakauyaca said the visit to children and less fortunate was part of spreading the good news of the Lord Jesus Christ

“We are so touched to see how the children are raised and loved and cared for by the home, which is why we wanted to see them,” she said.

“To show they are still cared for we wanted to help them by bringing food, gifts and other things.”
