Minister for Women

While we were in Fiji we were privileged to meet the Minister for Women, Dr. Luveni.  She was so gracious and generous to us.  The humanitarian department of the church has worked with the government on a variety of projects to lift and improve the lives of those less fortunate in Fiji.  Dr. Luveni has an ongoing project to provide sewing machines for each village so that low income women can become more self suffficient.  She is standing in front of a map showing where sewing machines have been placed.  The church has made contributions to this cause for the past several years.
