PROJECT Bula Mai registered another milestone in its efforts to raise funds for the Nadi Community Hospital.
For the first time ever, the Republic of Fiji Military Forces, the ANZ Bank Staff Foundation and Ministry of Health have partnered with the west-based charity to build a fence around the hospital.
"The fence, donated by the ANZ Bank Staff Foundation, was built by officers from the RFMF at a cost of more than $25,000 and marked the first successful joint venture between a corporate sponsor, the RFMF and a charity to support a Government-run public service institution," a statement said.
"It was a challenging proposition for four entities with very different operational structures and performance outputs to work together."
At a special ceremony on Monday the charity officially presented the fence to the Nadi Community Hospital and also gave a 40-foot container of medical equipment and supplies valued at more than $220,000.
"Procurement of the container of medical furniture and supplies was made possible by the sponsorship of world-renowned surfing resort Tavarua Island.
"The Tavarua donation was supported by the Carpenters Group with sponsorship from MH's," Project Bula Mai said.
