Fiji families - in lockdown, urgent food needs

2 months ago if you donated this was one of the communities you helped feed. In my inbox this morning this message from Mere and Sai one of our trustworthydistributors in the Lautoka area, they also live in this cramped housing area with 5 children but take nothing for themselves. She cooks to sell meals downtown to sustain their basic needs:

Bula again..Hope all is well. 

Hopefully we will see you again one day❤.

Yesterday we did  groceries donations drive  around here the barrack finance  by 1 of Sai's friend.Was a success. Many had their last cup of rice left  where there some had nothing at all in their cupboard.Got me teared up to listen to what they go through daily. It was a success we managed to bless 12 families.A busy tiring day but worth it seeing their faces with a smile and tears of appreciation.

That was our day yesterday.Just grateful of being part of this great initiative.

Hope you and the family have a wonderful Blessed day. We love you all & miss you

Here in Australia We soon will have greater freedoms. Even when we are in lockdown we have freedoms that many of our beautiful families in Fiji can’t enjoy. They have been ‘home schooling’ for over 6 months. It’s likely in a shared room and often with no internet access. So it’s pen and paper if they are lucky. 

We have food on our plates, government financial support or the ability still to earn income. Until you and I are free to fly international there are no such freedoms for these pacific neighbours. Their livelihood relies on our holidays. Will we return? If we do, how long will it take for their economic recovery. We might be an isolated, locked down island right now Australia but there are many ways we can reach beyond our borders. Can you help today?
