THE Vodafone ATH Fiji Foundation in collaboration with the Spinal Injury Association gave five wheelchairs to the Colonial War Memorial Hospital (CWMH) board of visitors in Suva yesterday.

The wheelchairs were to provide assistance to patients.

Vodafone ATH Fiji Foundation Executive Ambalika Kutty said this was their way of helping those who are in need.

She said over the past few years they distributed about $6.5million worth of wheelchairs and mobile devices, adding that the demand was high.

"The hospital needs 300 wheelchairs on daily basis the number of people coming into the hospital increased.

"We are giving five wheelchairs there are another 13 beds on its way that will arrive in Fiji next month, 13 beds and five more wheelchairs along with the medical supplies."

CWM Hospital Medical Superintendent Dr Jemesa Tudravu said over the years they received gifts from various organisations and companies. He said the contributions made by various companies not only support the hospital but the services they provided.

"It's an excellent gesture of supporting the community as we need wheelchairs here and we are grateful that a company like Vodafone is stepping up."
