“The charity works has seen children have access to medical attention that may be required immediately as opposed to waiting for budgets to come through standardized process,” she said.

“It is through monetary donations to the Fiji Children’s Overseas Treatment Fund that will allow these children access to facilities that they are limited in our Healthcare system.”

Fiji Shipping Organisation and Agents Association have actively contributed overtime are Matson (South Pacific) Limited, Carpenters Shipping Agency, Williams & Gosling Limited, Shipping Services (Fiji) Limited, NPT Agency, Transam (Fiji) Limited, Swires Shipping Pacific and Forum Line.

“That we see that our corporate sponsors and supporting members enjoy the tournaments with good spirits and know that it is for a good cause that will be used wisely for the future healthcare for our children.”

She added the public could expect a day filled with the purpose of raising money through golfing, to understand the limitations that children had with regards to Fiji’s healthcare system.

The annual charity golf tournament will be underway at the Fiji Golf Club course at Vatuwaqa, this Friday.
