2012 site for the toilets, just a 55-year dream

Deep down on the valley floor is a remote village called Wailoku.
It is predominately Melanesian-Fijian, and finally after 55-years of waiting, the dream to build new toilets was now becoming a reality.
2013 the dream becomes a reality!

Last year the Golden Oldies were asked if they would partner with the St John’s Parish to build these toilets.
Now a year later, in partnership, and with a wonderful effort in the last week from Allan, Grant and Tim, and the local village men, the toilets were completed.

Time for the grand opening.

And that’s exactly what happened, an official blessing for the opening, a church service with a stunning dance from the children and youth, followed by a village banquet celebration.
Let the celebrations begin!!!

Let the celebrations begin!!!


It was an honour and humbling experience for this team to represent everyone at this special and historic occasion.
