Atelaite Koto and her two sons have been offered a lifeline from Fantasy Island operators.

This offer includes employment as a security officer and accommodation for her family.

Ms Koto said she would need more time to think about working and staying on Fantasy Island in Nadi. This offer was for her to be employed as a security officer together with the provision of a staff quarters given to her by managers on Fantasy Island.

Ms Koto and her two sons, Graham Woods and Jimilai Kani were assisted by a number of people from Fiji and abroad after the Fiji Sun ran an article on May 16, 2019 titled ‘Single Mum Builds Own Shed To Shelter Her Two Children.”

Yesterday, the Fiji Sun team accompanied Ms Koto and her two sons to Fantasy Island to see the staff quarters and get more information on the job as a security in if she agreed to work and stay on the Island.

Ms Koto said the staff quarters were just right for the three of them and she would be able to work as a security officer on the Island.

“As long as my children get an education. Any school for them would be fine,” she said.

“But I will need time to think about this.”

A spokesperson from Fantasy Island who wished to remain anonymous said he was concerned about the welfare of the two children.

He said on behalf of the Island, he would offer to pay for all the necessary needs of the family including the required items for the children’s education.

The spokesperson said Fantasy Island would also have employment regulations in place if Ms Koto agreed to take up the job and reside on the Island.

Meanwhile, the aid from the public and those residing abroad continue to flood in daily.
