While the Fiji Cancer Society awaits its audited report, the patients are still the society’s main priority.
Society manager Rajshree Baleisuva said the audited report would not have any impact on its patients.
She said the society provided counselling to about 40 patients monthly.
“We have 40 plus children including West kids who are currently receiving support and assistance from FCS monthly, 359 adults in central and eastern and 250 plus in the West,” Ms Baleisuva said.
“Our average counseling would be approximately 40 monthly and our palliative cases seen per month are 36.”
She said the society assisted its patients through one of its operating accounts.
“We have one operating account and funds are released from the FCS general account,” Ms Baleisuva said. All other accounts under FCS are frozen.”
The council needs audited accounts as well as the audited reports to be presented at their annual general meeting (AGM) which is supposed to happen soon.
