Friends give to hospital

PEOPLE of Labasa and the North will benefit from surgical instruments worth $250,000 given by members of the Kiwi group, Friends of Fiji Health to the Labasa Hospital Board.

The group comprises medical specialists from hospitals in New Zealand who sacrificed their money and time with their family to take leave and volunteer at the Labasa Hospital.

Board chairman Ami Kohli applauded the good work done by the team during their week-long stint carrying out free surgery for patients at the hospital.

Mr Kohli said the vast knowledge and experience shared during the team's visit would greatly benefit staff members of the Labasa Hospital.

"The board had facilitated the team's stay in Labasa while hospital staff took charge of their visitors during their working hours," he said.

"We encourage this form of visits as it also involves the exchange of experience and knowledge between medical specialists.

"We are also expecting two more team visits like this from volunteer groups willing to offer their services at the hospital."
