PROFITS from a newly-refurbished canteen worth $40,000 will go towards projects initiated by the Nadi Hospital Board of Visitors.
Board chairman Mohammed Israr Khan said the canteen had been one of the major projects of the board in 2014.
"We are entirely dependent on donations and so with this money, we would be able to have some added income so that we will be able to carry out more projects for the hospital," Mr Khan said.
"We are grateful that the Ministry of Health was able to allow us to acquire this income for our projects."
He said projects by the board had been costly but worth it.
"We did the nurses quarters and maintenance for women's ward, which cost about $10,000 and the renovation of a special outpatient department."
