THE Hilton Art Exhibition featured many exquisite art pieces that described the unique and rich culture Fiji has.

Art pieces ranged from acrylic on canvas, oil on canvas, mixed recycle piece, ink on paper, mixed media, paper cuttings and many more.

While opening the art exhibition on Wednesday, President Ratu Epeli Nailatikau said the growth of the Hilton organisation to what it wastoday was a direct reflection of the dedication, compassion or the 'big hearts' so to speak of all those who were involved in its initial establishment.

Ratu Epeli said he was pleased to hear that the organisation catered for about 130 individuals and aimed to do much more.

"I am advised that the core function of the organisation has been identified as early intervention and that the Hilton organisation aims to provide a holistic, multi-disciplinary child-centred program to address the needs of children with disabilities and their families at the earliest possible time in a child's life.'

He said services offered included physiotherapy, early childhood education, primary education, nutrition, transportation, medical health clinics, hostel facilities and parent support groups.

"I am pleased to hear that the Hilton organisation proposes to establish the first Audiology and Speech Therapy Unit in Fiji by early 2015," he said.

"The art exhibition features many local artists who have on display their paintings and who are going to donate 20 per cent of their sale value towards the Hilton organisation."
