CFD chair = Venasio Tamainai, working with a committee.
The CFD runs a Suva-based youth group and Sunday School. They also work with the hearing children of Deaf parents.
On Saturday evenings the CFD meets at the Gospel School for Deaf for an evening together and a Bible Study.
A women’s group meets on Thursday evenings.
Twice a year there are camps to which Deaf come from all over Fiji.
A very active CFD group also operates in Lautoka under the leadership of Mesake Qionilase.
Mesake and Seriana in Lautoka, and Vanasio and Leona, in Suva, regularly welcome Deaf into their homes.
Easter Camp - Over 80 attended, of all ages, from around Fiji. Three overseas visitors were the main speakers: Matthew from Nigeria, now living in the U.K., with his friends Tina and Bryan, also from the U.K. Matthew was the first qualified teacher of the deaf to work at the GSD so there were many reunions with "old friends".
Matthew has a special ability to communicate with the Deaf both through sign and through acting. This camp was special in several ways.
