Students boost children's ward

THE good relationship established between International School Suva and the Colonial War Memorial Hospital has been a continuing one.

This continued with gifts of books and furniture to the staff members and management of the Pediatric hospital on Thursday.

In accepting the gifts, consultant pediatrician Dr Lisi Tikoduadua said the children's ward lived on gifts and any chance of people visiting them was a great relief to the staff members, as well as those sick children.

""We do not have children only from Suva but from around the country, as well as the region," Mrs Tikoduadua said.

"Thank you so much for this relationship that we established years ago.

"I believe this is not the first one as we have had students also from ISS decorating this same ward with balloons and colours during Christmas.

"It is great to see these students here today and their smiles and gifts are much appreciated."

ISS principal Dr Anna Marsden said this relationship had been a continuous one and the visit and the gifts was a significant one not only for the staff members, but for the children who were admitted in hospital.

Mrs Marsden, who once worked as a nurse, said the assistance would benefit the children's hospital and the students were so proud.

First-time mother, Siteri Heritage said the visit was indeed a blessing for her and her one-month-old daughter.
