Four Israeli medical specialists are in Fiji to conduct free Ear, Nose and Throat surgeries and otolaryngology screenings over eight days as part of their humanitarian programme in Fiji.

They start today at the Colonial War Memorial Hospital and finish Wednesday August 2.

The team will work closely with the Fijian doctors through the Ministry of Health and Medical Services.

Speaking to the Fiji Sun yesterday, the Israel Pacific Islands advisor Yaron Dadon said the three doctors and a nurse team were highly trained specialists in the field.

Mr Dadon said the team upon arrival at the Nausori airport yesterday met with the Colonial War Memorial Hospital team.

“They will be working full time inside CWM Hospital treating as many cases as they possibly can,” Mr Dadon said.

“They will be resting on the weekend of Saturday Sunday, then resume Monday July 31st and continue until August 2,” he said.

This visit will also coincide with the Non-Resident Ambassador to Fiji’s visit, who will present his credentials to President Major-General (Ret’d) Jioji Konrote tomorrow. In the evening an Israeli Exhibition will be on display at the Fiji National University, Nasinu campus.

The exhibition will include the anniversary of Israel’s Humanitarian Project last year in Vuma Village, Ovalau where they had assisted in rebuilding of 24 homes affected by Tropical Cyclone Winston.

Mr Dadon confirmed the Fiji National University campus programme will also include the signing of the agriculture Memorandum of Understanding between Fiji and Israel.
