Update: 2:06PM MEDICAL students of the College of Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences of the FNU are on a mission to reach out to rural people and assist.

Faculty dean Professor Ian Rouse said this was done to help them understand the way of life of village people so they get a fair idea of treating and understanding people before graduating.

As part of this mission a group of 30 students along with 30 other  volunteers from New Zealand and Australia depart Suva today for a two week project in Nairukuruku and Taulevu villages in Naitasiri.

Apart from fixing their water source alone, they will also do health promotions and screeing programs for villagers, Professor Rouse said.

The project which is into its seventh year was launched in Suva today.
