CHILDREN getting treated at the Colonial War Memorial Hospital children's outpatient department have something to be happy about with the department's refurbishment by ANZ Fiji Foundation.

ANZ Fiji Foundation contributed to the refurbishment of the Children's Hospital Outpatient Department in the past five weeks with more than 80 staff members volunteering in the refurbishment work.

ANZ chief executive officer for the Pacific and Fiji Vishnu Mohan said ANZ was there to show its ongoing commitment and support for the hospital and the community at large.

"At ANZ, our approach to corporate responsibility must also evolve to support and strengthen our strategy, our values and our brand and to ensure we are making a significant and focused contribution to the world we live in," he said.

"Apart from the refurbishment works that have taken place here in the last couple of weeks, our volunteers are also what brings our corporate responsibility framework to life.

"One of the key elements of our corporate responsibility framework is investing, this refers to donations made to the community.

"I understand that ANZ Fiji Foundation's contribution to the refurbishment for the children's hospital outpatient department totals to more than $60,000."
