Moving into this village last year, a young couple built their own house with tin and sticks.
“We’ve planted a garden and go fishing, but my husband has no job. Is there a seasonal job in NZ for him?” The outside cook stand is used even during the Suva monsoon rains. After these rains, all their worldly possessions from their one suitcase are usually wet and they have to constantly dry their belongings outside when the sun reappears.
Golden Oldies have a dream to see if over time, their home could be upgraded to a mud-brick house, along with some small business ventures for jobs that will support their village and church.
