GOOD Samaritans plan to continue bringing in health experts from the US to offer free medical services to the people of the North in future.

And after last week's visit to the two Northern divisional hospitals, the 13-member team, most of whom are from Los Angeles, is likely to return to Vanua Levu next year.

The team's trip was made possible through a collective effort by a group of friends and Savusavu brothers.

Trip co-ordinator Anand Chand said from Savusavu yesterday they decided to organise the visit to help the community.

"My cousin in the US, Ashneel Shiu Chand, sponsored the team's trip. He was the one who paid the team's airfare," Mr Chand said.

"A friend of ours in New Zealand, Raymond Sharma, also assisted us with the trip. I, co-ordinated with the local authorities.

"We felt it was a proper thing to do. These are specialists who volunteered to come to Fiji to offer their services free."

Mr Chand said they collaborated with the Health Ministry to bring the team over.

Health Ministry spokeswoman Evlyn Mani said the team also gifted advanced surgical gear.
