Who We Are
FijiLIFE began our mission to provide hope, love, and service to the poor, disadvantaged, and needy people of Fiji from the Gold Coast, Australia in 2021. FijiLIFE is impartial – we make no discrimination as to nationality, race, religious beliefs, class, or political opinions. People of all faiths, all backgrounds, and all communities deserve to be celebrated and supported.
Get To Know Us…
FijiLIFE is founded on three pillars…
Our feelings of expectation and desire for positive outcomes in events and circumstances in the lives of the poor.
There are 3 aspects to Hope:
1. Having goal-oriented thoughts.
2. Developing strategies to achieve goals.
3. Being motivated to expend effort to achieve goals.
— The feeling we have for others; being deeply committed and connected to others.
— Help relieve any unnecessary suffering, being forgiving, gracious, and merciful.
— We will be a blessing – keep being our best, treating people with respect.
— Our actions of helping, doing work for, or aiding others.
— Life-long dedication and committment to helping others have better living, better life.
— Doing the best to make a difference through the service we give to others.
What We Do
Each year we raise funds to send to charities in Fiji to carry out their project work, relieving the suffering of individuals, selflessly providing life-changing social, medical, educational, and family support to children and adults who otherwise would go without. Together we are empowering better living, better life.
Our mission is not one we can accomplish alone, and the ongoing support from many of our donors is key to bringing hope and healing to even more people. Thank you!
We deliver gifted medical & educational equipment and supplies to charities and hospitals in Fiji. We fund disability aids, home modifications, and cyclone-safe housing, building self-sufficiency for the poor and most vulnerable.

Our ‘fingerprint’ design identifies and speaks to each poor, disadvantaged, or needy Fijian to assure you that FijiLIFE Foundation will work to help provide you and your family better living conditions and opportunities for living a better and fulfilled life.
We invited Andy Baker, a remarkable artist on the Gold Coast with great skill and creativity who has had a long association with Fiji, to enhance the ‘fingerprint’ concept. He has used the main islands of Viti Levu and Vanua Levu as the inspirations for the shapes within the fingerprint look. He has also made it NOT a perfect circle on purpose to highlight how our imperfections make us perfect.
Each of us has a unique fingerprint; a unique purpose in life. When we are poor, without adequate money, or in need of basic shelter, food, and belonging to an uplifting community, life is all that much harder.
At times like this, it is important that each of us never give up, but keep striving toward our purpose, our goal for ourselves and our family. Life will keep throwing us a curve ball; something which is unexpected, surprising, or disruptive. It could be a problem, situation, or question that we do not expect and is difficult to deal with. FijiLIFE Foundation will bring help and relief to vulnerable Fijians. The ‘fingerprint’ in our logo is to remind us that each Fijian from a poor or disadvantaged background is valuable and worthy of our support.
