Beauties clean up

WITH only a few more days left for the crowning of this year's Miss World Fiji, the 10 finalists lent a hand in cleaning up the children's ward as part of their "Beauty with a Purpose charity campaign" at the CWM Hospital in Suva yesterday.

The ladies' visitation to children's ward was an introduction to the Beauty with a Purpose charity campaign — being one of the main events in which the 10 finalists will be judged on.

As part of their visit they were divided into three groups to see and observe the kind of medication the patients are getting.

Fiji National Miss World director Andhy Blake said the finalists' involvement in a humanitarian cause was a major part of the judging.

He said apart from meeting the children, the 10 finalists cleaned up the ward and spoke to the children about their experiences and some of the things they were planning to do. "For the girls, this has been a warm and satisfying experience. The children were all over them, asking questions of what it is like to compete," Mr Blake said.

"After Miss World Fiji is crowned, she will help raise charity funds for the children's ward and help support other projects that benefit the patients and staff."

Miss World Fiji finalist Asena Rokotuiwai said this was one of the most memorable visits she had ever been to.

The 17-year-old lass who is also the youngest of the 10 finalists said she was able to learn and see what patients went through and the kind of medications administered. "What Fiji needs to be focusing on is the medication the patients are getting and try and improve on it."
