CANADIAN NAVY CREW WORKS AT ORPHANAGE

Members of the Royal Canadian Navy (RCN) and Republic of Fiji Military Forces Naval Squadron took part in community work at St Christopher’s Home at Nakasi this week.

The team of more than 20 sailors was led by Warrant Officer (WO) Aaron Segal of the Canadian Army Engineers, who is on attachment with the RCN deployed to Fiji.

Speaking to RFMF Media, WO Segal said the community work was part of the cultural integration and community outreach programme which will be conducted for a week before the team leaves the country.

“Its (community work) aim is under the umbrella of cultural integration and community outreach, so it provides our sailors to integrate with the Fijian Military and elements of the Fijian community,” WO Segal said.

“This is the second location that we have been to … so we have visited schools and hospitals to see children and hear their stories, tell them some of ours and basically meeting other people and learning their culture.” WO Segal said.

The team of sailors conducted works around the home which included reconstruction of clothes lines, grooming of the fence and paint work on various installation at the home.

Also thanking the RNC and Fiji military on behalf of the home was Sister Kalo, who stated that the community work was a great help for the home in terms of security because of the maintenance conducted by the team around the fence perimeter.

She added that the assistance was helpful while they prepared for their 50th year celebration, which will be held this year.
