SWIRE Shipping Fiji Warriors left smiles on the faces of the kids admitted at the Colonial War Memorial (CWM) Hospital in Toorak, Suva.

The children got to meet some of the team members and engage in laughter and conversations.

The visit was part of a community initiative by their major sponsors – Swire Shipping – into getting the players involved in community work.

Fiji Warriors captain and hooker Mesulame Dolokoto described his experience as a learning factor in his life.

“Coming here and seeing these kids was a good experience for me, it has taught me the importance of giving back to the community,” said Dolokoto.

“I have learnt to always remember where you started from no matter where you go and what you have achieved.”

Fiji Warriors scrum-half Frank Lomani said the visit to the kids was an emotional experience for him.

“One thing I learnt from today’s outreach is being a man of character, being a good rugby player is not only achieved on the field but off the field as well,” said Lomani.

In addition to visiting the kids, the team helped paint the procedure room in the children’s ward which is part of their community project.
