FRIENDS of Australian couple, Jayne and Ashley Wren, whose daughter was born prematurely in the Nadi Hospital, have managed to raise more than $32,920 to finance the new family's travel back to Sydney.

Heading the fundraiser, family friend Angela Allison said travel insurances were not willing to cover any medical expenses for the baby or accommodation and flights.

She said a medical team would also be needed to transport their daughter, Maddison Jayne Cazna Wren, at an estimated cost of $104,596.20 ($A60,000).

"Financial worries are proving to be a stress that Jay and Ash do not need at what should be the most exciting and amazing time of their lives," she said.

Mr Wren expressed his gratitude to the staff of Nadi Hospital for taking extra care of young Maddi.
