Women help in Labasa cane cutting
The cane season is coming to an end for the year and the Labasa people still have cane to cut. The women are helping out - getting up at 5 a.m. to prepare breakfast and then going to help the men in the fields. Aruna Wati 31 and Suman Lata 30 are pictured here - photo courtesy of Fiji Sun.
Our Fijian family have a few cane leases at Vatuadova and for a few months each year teams of young men come from Mali Island and other places and camp at the village to work as cane-cutters in the surrounding areas.
