Don Bosco House, Nakasi, Suva, Fiji Islands, 29 June 2020 -- When the government lifted the COVID-19 lockdown and some restrictions, the Brothers went out to meet the young in the villages of Muanikoso and Makoi. It was an exciting moment not only for the young people but also for the brothers to be with the young. Questions and stories were told about how they coped with the lockdown, the curfew and other restrictions, and being absent from their friends. Some said, they cannot wait to go back to school since they do not have anything to do at home. Some parents also shared the challenges they faced with having the children confined to their homes for the past three months.


On Thursdays and Fridays, the Brothers have been visiting all the families of the students to come to the Sunday Catechetics School at Don Bosco House. Thanks to Bro. Silao for developing his skills in baking and providing tasty pies, muffins, bread and scones for the students and their families.


Rugby is “the” sport of the South Pacific islands. The visits are also an opportunity to play rugby with the young. Visiting the young and their families has been a great opportunity to reach out to them and to be with them in these challenging times.
