Maternity packs for new mothers
Members of the Suva City Church have been getting together once a month to volunteer for the charity Viti Amma. Viti Amma was established in 2008 to supply and deliver Maternity Care Packages for new mothers at the Public Hospital in Suva. Many of the mothers giving birth in the Anderson ward are unable to provide the basic essentials required by the hospital when they come in to give birth. The Maternity care packs include, diapers, maternity pads, soap, baby wipes and cotton buds which (with the exception of the cotton buds) are donated by Asaleo care.
The packs are then delivered daily to the hospital by Liti (who is a disciple in the Suva Church). She delivers approximately 150 packs per week. We have on average 15 volunteers who spend about 2 hours a month packing. We also have a few volunteers who pack when needed during the month.
The Fiji church has just completed the Parenting from the tree of Life series written by Gary and Anne Marie Ezzo. The 17 weekly sessions have been beneficial for both parents and married couples, offering very practical teaching on how to raise children God's way. The Suva City Church will be extending the series to members of the community in June 19. Our prayer is that many lives will be impacted as we minister to the families within our communities.
SPA Mission corps
The Fiji church is excited to be hosting a SPA Mission Corp from June 20th to July 1st . Volunteers from around the SPA region will come to Fiji to serve the community in a very practical way while continuing to spread God's word.
