THE Student Life group of the University of the South Pacific hopes to bring smiles to the patients of the PJ Twomey Hospital in Tamavua this week when they clean up the premises.
Student volunteers Sireli Luvena and Susan Serukai said group members were looking forward to cleaning up the hospital tomorrow and Thursday.
"We've visited the place and we were really challenged to clean it up," Ms Serukai said.
"The hospital is for rehabilitation but some of the areas in the premises are not clean.
"We hope this small gesture will bring smiles to the patients and encourage other groups and people to do their part in society and clean up health centres, clinics and hospitals because we will all use them one day."
The 35 USP students, apart from cleaning up the premises, will also paint murals to brighten up the hospital.
"We want to bless them, their movements are restricted and we know the health care workers are tired.
"We are young and energetic, we will be able to reach the hard corners and pull out weeds — it's nothing big but we what know the impact of it will be."
