Geelong and Fiji

from w
Last night our family joined in with about two hundred people to fund-raise for a Fijian family where the grandmother has serious medical issues such as amputation because of diabetes. The medical care in Fiji is not as good as previous years and many patients do not get adequate care.  Church people and Geelong and Ballarat Fiji connected families met for dinner in the Belmont Uniting Church as were entertained by a fire dance, string band songs and the friendship and fellowship was great. A big crowd so some had to sit on mats on the floor. The food was really Oz with some cassava but that was fine. There is a generosity expressed in events such as this and the link between Geelong and Fiji affirmed.
