RHD project

A COMMENDABLE show of support from the business community was displayed on Saturday night at the Accor hotel group's Cure Kids Fiji fundraiser in Nadi.

Hosted at the Novotel Hotel Nadi, the event raised $3000 which would be directed towards financing more medical equipment for rheumatic heart disease (RHD).

The hotel is one of Accor's four local properties and according to general manager Jack Work, RHD remained one of their central projects and a condition they were keen to continue raising awareness for.

"RHD affects young children, mostly aged five to 16, and this is about purchasing the relevant equipment and giving them the necessary medication" Mr Work said.

A significant number of attendees are continuous supporters from previous fundraising drives, with $3000 raised alone from the dinner tickets sold.

Previous projects by Cure Kids Fiji include providing medical equipment at the Lautoka Hospital's children's ward, neonatal intensive care unit and pediatric intensive care unit, as well as the Nadi Hospital's children and maternity wards.
