An Outboard Motor to feed a village

While being lucky enough to visit the Island of Fulanga in a remote part of the Fiji archipelago we visited a village and met Jotame Leuda and his wife who were assigned by the chief to be our hosts while we were there. Jotame asked us to look at his outboard engine to see if we could fix it. We found that the engine was completely ceased and would never be able to be fixed. The village of approximately 80 people live off the land and sea for their survival and we  would like raise funds to purchase a new outboard for Jotame to help him provide for his family and village. The people are the friendliest and most generous people I have ever had the pleasure to have met.

Skip a few bottles of wine & beers, and please make a donation to help support Jotame and his village!
