THE Rewa ward of the Colonial War Memorial Hospital (CWMH) now sparkles with a bright and bubbly colour after it was painted by staff members of a business house.
Digicel Fiji staff members along with some CWM Hospital staff took time out on a busy Saturday to help clean the hospital.
The staff members painted parts of the Rewa Ward along with the nurses' changing room, scrubbed washrooms and part of the storage area and also collected rubbish throughout the hospital.
Digicel public relations and sponsorship manager Zaheer Hassan said the organisation was dedicated to giving back to the community and making a difference.
"This is one of our many community initiatives and it is a pleasure to partner with the Ministry of Health in this project," said Mr Hassan.
"We really look forward to more opportunities like this whether with MOH or any other organisation."
CWMH general manager Major Ned Taito said it was a good initiative put up by Digicel towards the betterment of the hospital.
"We are proud to work with Digicel staff and many other organisations that come up with thoughtful initiatives as this," said Major Taito.
"This morning nine bags of rubbish were collected from around CWM which brings to attention the need to make use of the rubbish bins which are provided by the hospital."
The wards have been painted green bringing a sense of liveliness to the hospital atmosphere. Mr Hassan said this was just one of the things on their to-do-list and they were planning more projects in months to come.
