A family of four have had their prayers answered after the Methodist Church of Fiji offered them some much needed assistance.
Mukesh Chand, his wife and two sons are homeless after their house was burnt to the ground in a fire in August at the informal settlement – Komave in Nabua, Suva.
Methodist Church head of Communication Rev. James BVhagwan says its everyone’s responsibility to lend a helping hand where they can.
“We’ve been very fortunate that there have been a number of individual few communities groups have responded what we did we use our church communications.We put their story out in the social media just to share it with people and the response form the community has been wonderful.”
He adds, the Church is working towards ensuring the family are able to stand on their own two feet.
“What we trying to do at the moment is identify some place where they can at actually lease a piece of land for residential purposes and then help them try and find some gainful employment as well.”
If anyone would like to lend a helping hand to the Chand family, you can do so by contacting the Methodist Church.
