Volunteers visit 4300

CLOSE to 4300 people in seven villages and seven settlements from Sigatoka to Rakiraki were visited by 54 volunteers from the Fiji Red Cross Society over the past week.

Resource development manager Dianne Masih-Reddy said more needed to be done because dengue cases were increasing.

"We are working very closely with the Health Ministry because the number of people suspected to have dengue is going up," she said.

"Our volunteers in the Western Division are continuing with door-to-door visits advising people on how to keep their compounds clean and clear of any containers that have the potential to breed mosquitoes.

"Three teams from the Central Division that have been working in the west over the past week will continue their advocacy work in the division until next week."

She said because of the overwhelming number of patients at the Sigatoka and Lautoka hospitals, volunteers were tasked with assisting medical staff on the ground.
