NURSING stations in remote islands and the interior of Fiji will soon get new sets of hospital beds thanks to members of Rotary Fiji.

The first set of 330 beds and mattresses for distribution far and wide across Fiji were handed out to the Minister for Health Dr Neil Sharma on Wednesday.

Malini Raghwan the assistant district governor for Suva said they were pleased to deliver.

"Rotary in Fiji is helping as only it does best; connecting people and sharing resources for the benefit of those most in need.

"Rotarians give their time and money voluntarily to serve our community" she said.

"We have seen the new hospitals and extensions and renovations and know how important it is to get nice beds for the patients" said Rick Eyre, Assistant District Governor for the West.
