Declared objective To advance education, health and welfare and to

|Safe crossing for more than 100 children|
|On the island of
Vanua Levu, over 100 children have to make the dangerous journey across
the Korotari River to get to and from school each day. This
involves wading, often up to chest high, through the fast flowing river.
For the smaller children who are unable to wade across, it involves
clinging to an inflated inner tube and being pulled across.
Children of Fiji, in conjunction with the Government of Fiji, is working on the provision of a 55 metre suspension bridge across the river to give these children (and around 80 adults) a safe way across the river
|Shoes for children|
|Many families in
Fiji are struggling and parents are often unable to afford to buy shoes
for their children. These children might live miles from their school
and have to walk barefoot on rough ground to get there and back each
day. As a result many children suffer from sores and infections
|First Aid boxes for kindergartens and school|
|We continue to
provide First Aid boxes for schools and kindergartens. Many schools and
kindergartens do not have any basic first aid resources to deal with
minor ailments. Small injuries can often become infected and lead to
further complications. We have decided to produce 'Children of Fiji'
First Aid boxes (containing such things as plasters, bandage, antiseptic
cream, antiseptic wipes, eyewash).
If you would like to sponsor a box for a school for £20, please contact us. Contact
|Many families live in rural locations without electricity. For families with young children this can make life very difficult. Many families will resort to a bottle filled with kerosene and a rag inserted in the neck , to burn and provide light if the children wake during the night. This is obviously very dangerous but, for just £10, we can provide these families with a solar lantern|
