IT'S a blessing for 103 disadvantaged children on Rabi Island who received educational assistance from the Banaban Child Welfare early this year.

The organisation has in the past assisted orphans, children whose parents are paralysed or handicapped, and victims of violence and abuse. Welfare secretary Terikano Takesau said the help was in the form of stationery, school fees and uniforms.

"The recipients were identified after we carried out a survey of disadvantaged people on the island," Ms Takesau said. "These are primary school students who are between the ages of six and 14 years.

"Most of the children don't have anyone at all to support them and are really fortunate to meet us."

Ms Takesau said they needed more funds to support others, aged 15 to 18, who were at home because of financial constraints.

"While some recipients are sitting in classrooms with their books and pens, others are still crying for help in their homes because they don't have anyone to support them."
