Dream House Comes True

Ms Manorma Devi is a woman who never lost hope and would knock on the doors of others to ask for support. A widow from Sarava, Labasa she thanks all those who have assisted her. She spent 16 years in her thatched house that stood the test of time but eventually the house succumbed to the forces of Hurricane Tomas. 


Niranjans Autoport, Waiqele Sawmills, Advanced Parts, Lions Club of Labasa in conjunction with Vodafone ATH Fiji Foundation responded with generous donations to our article “Mother In Need for Shelter” published in Volume 17 September 2010.


With their donations of building materials and donation of land from Mr. Ramesh Chand, a new house was built for Manorma.


Once again a big Vinakalevu, Dhanvaad to all who came forward to help this worthy cause. May god bless all.

Icing on the Cake

It was a beautiful sunny morning on Saturday 11th December 2010.  I could see the children in their best outfits with their parents, guardians and friends coming towards the hall.  They did not care about the sweat running down from their foreheads nor their aching feet, because they knew what lay ahead of them for the day.

The function started at 10am with the arrival of the chief guest, Mr. Steve Knynenburg, Director of APTC.  This was followed by the singing of the National Anthem by everybody and items were presented by our Bayly children. The program was very exciting especially when we all got to hear the children expressing their own feelings of appreciation for where they are today through the financial support of JP Bayly Education.

28 students were awarded prizes in different categories at each level. We also awarded Farah Farzana Bi with a special ‘Bayly Prize’ to recognise the best Form Six student. She received a gift of her choice; an MP4 player. Other outstanding awards were presented to Filomena Waqaicece of MGM High School for Outstanding cross-cultural leadership, Kitione Ravutu for passing with flying colours from Nabua Vocational School and Shivam Shanil Singh for scoring the highest mark in Fiji Eighth Year Examination.

The arrival of Santa Clause was ‘the icing on the cake’. Santa Clause danced around the hall singingHo! Ho! Ho! distributed snacks and presents whilst the children were filled with joy and they then all started to groove!  Later, everyone was treated to lunch and ice-cream for dessert.  Every child went home with a Christmas present.

The whole event is something everyone should witness to experience the satisfaction, inner joy and peace to all those that are directly involved. This is the grand finale to yet another successful year.

Fiji Times article
Sunday, December 05, 2010

THREE sisters sponsored by Bayley Welfare brought joy to their mother after receiving their medals for scoring high marks in their respective classes.

Rukhshar Ali of Form Seven, Shafrina Ali of Class Seven and Shagufta Ali of Class Five of Basoga proudly received their medals at the awards ceremony at Bayley House yesterday.

They have been receiving educational assistance from Bayly Welfare Labasa since last year.

"I am happy with my three daughters' academic performance ù they have done me proud," Hasmul Nisha said.

"Their father passed away and we are surviving on social welfare assistance. There is no income-earner for the family."

Bayly Welfare Labasa spokesman Satishwar Chand said the awards were to recognise the hard work and academic success of students supported by the organisation, which sponsors 125 students in and around Labasa.

"The children come from poor backgrounds and this is an effort to encourage them to work harder," Mr Chand said.

Chief guest Helen Jaduram encouraged the students to study to achieve their dreams.

"Bayly Welfare has helped many needy people by preparing children to become future leaders," Ms Jaduram said.
