Providing for the everyday needs & education of children in difficulty
St Tabitha Children’s Home & Safe Home in Fiji was built in 2013-2015 next to our Holy Trinity church in Saweni, Fiji, we have also established an Orphanage/Children’s Home dedicated to St. Tabitha which since 2015 has operated in cooperation with the Fijian Ministry of Social Welfare. Over the last five years, over fifty children have been looked after by us in St. Tabitha Home. We currently house around twenty-five children, in a modern, fit for purpose, fully staffed facility. Our aim is to do more than simply house these children. We want to provide them with an education and a loving and supportive environment in which they can flourish and grow. The ongoing costs of running the Children’s Home are around NZD 6,000 per month.
This sum covers the direct day to day expenses: food, electricity, clothing, schooling and the cost of payment for staff and tutors. The nuns who care for the children do so unpaid, and dedicate themselves to this mission out of love for Christ and for the children.
You can sponsor children from St Tabitha Children’s Home. By setting up a monthly donation of NZD 170/month you will not only provide for the daily needs of one child but also offer some stability in the lives of all our children.
