The staff and patients of Nadi Hospital on Saturday were delighted when a group of Koreans volunteers helped out at the hospital.
It was part of giving back to the community and the students also shared the joy of welcoming 2014 with patients.
The group of 17 volunteers included Korean students, their parents and staff of Edupia.
Edupia Fiji Limited, a cultural and educational centre for Koreans in Nadi, has been doing this in the past few years.
Praneet Prakash, its manager, said the Edupia family has helped out at orphanages, the Golden Home, the Nadi District Hospital and did beach clean-ups.
“Edupia embraces community service within its education programme and teaches students the moral importance of sharing and caring,” Mr Prakash said.
“Doing community work gives us a chance to help the unfortunate. We will continue to help out the local community.”
Edupia is a home-stay for Koreans where students come from Korea to learn English. It was founded over a decade ago.
