Edupia Fiji Limited, a homestay dwelling for South Korean students in Nadi, did volunteer work for Saint Mina Children’s Home (SMCH), Legalega, Nadi last Saturday.

The international students were relieved that the restrictions in movement because of the COVID-19 pandemic were lifted.

With their families back in South Korea, the international students picked SMCH to carry out the voluntary work.

Nadi’s Sangam Sadhu Kuppuswamy Memorial College Year 12 student Seoyoung Kim said, “I was very excited because it’s been a long time since I’ve had to visit places after the shutdown.

“It was not hard at all to clean the rooms and stairs and cook for the children. Just a thank-you from the children was enough,” Mr Kim said.

“Seeing the children happy because of what we brought for them and cleaning up their place was a pleasure.  I think we should come here more often.

“My fellow international students feel the same way,” the student added.

The students cleaned and organised the children’s home and its compound.

Now that restriction are lifted, the South Korean students plan to do more volunteer service.

“The children’s hugs were sufficient; we were lucky to be appreciated,” he said.

The Edupia international students also visited and carried out voluntary work at the Nadi Police Station the previous Saturday.
