Dreams and prayers to live in a comfortable and a safe home were fulfilled last week for Adrian Koroi and his family.

Last April, the Fiji Sun published a story of the Koroi family and how they were given a piece of land from a 65-year-old lady, Shri Mati, after an eviction claim.

With the help of ‘Good Samaritans’, a makeshift home was built for them to live in. Mr Koroi said two people contacted them saying they wanted to build a home for them.

“We were dreaming and at the same time praying for a new home that will be a safe place for my family,” Mr Koroi said.

“During the recent flood, our makeshift home was underwater so I had to take my family to a friend’s place for shelter.

“My family and I are so grateful and overwhelmed that now we have a secure home and don’t have to worry about the flood. All I wanted was my family to be saved.

“My aunt, who lives overseas and wants to remain anonymous, has contacted us and said that she will provide half of the payment of our new home and the rest will be provided by the TABS Investments Company Limited.

“These are angels sent by God to us. We want to thank them for their kind hearts, especially Uluibau Tabete.”

Mr Tabete is the owner of the company.

“We couldn’t believe that the material for this house is mahogany, which is high quality timber. Last year was a challenging year for us. I am so happy that we now have a good home.”

TABS Investments production manager, Josese Cabealawa, said: “After the story was published in the Fiji Sun, we intended to complete the story by building a new home for this family.

“This is the first house that we are going to build and will advertise this sample. The initiative behind this is to help the low-income earners.”

Construction started last Wednesday and it is expected to be completed today.
