Ms Sumintra Shankran, a widow for 11 years, lives with her two sons Martin and Nicholas. They currently reside at a HART home in Navaka, Nadi. They were asked to vacate the HART village by March 2011. The family secured a piece of land (a quarter acre) from the I-Taukei Lands Trust Board at Navo, Koromakawa Settlement, Vuniasi in Nadi for 99 years. The vestry of St Christopher’s Church (Nadi) is assisting the family build a permanent house which she could call home.
In March she was allocated $5,000 to assist in constructing her house. Construction work should be completed by December.
