Chevalier Hostel posted Oct 8th
We’re still waiting for the right opportunity to go to Moala island (part of the Lau group of islands) to distribute school & library books in all the schools there, but it’s a bit complicated: although Holiday Inn has kindly sponsored our air fares, there are too many boxes to put onto a small plane & so these will need to go separately by boat. The problem is that while 2 companies have boats that go there, neither of them know exactly when the next boat will leave…..& of course we can’t get plane tickets until we’re sure that a boat is leaving with the books on it!
In the meantime, we’re carrying on our charity distributions in the various hostels around Suva & continue to discover new ones all the time! The one featured here is Chevalier Hostel: a home for 14 secondary school students who come from various islands around Fiji but who don’t have any relatives in the capital that they can stay with. This hostel does a great job with its limited resources & it was a pleasure to give to people that are so appreciative.
Along with Japanese volunteer friend Michiko, we donated sheets from Holiday Inn & German toothpaste from our Children of Fiji friends.
