The students of Fiji National University’s College of Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences and Sangam School of Nursing, Labasa received $185,000 worth of medical books on Friday.
The donation was made by Books for Papua New Guinea (PNG) Kids in collaboration with Value City Limited.
Iosefo Lawakeli, a second-year nursing student, said he was eager to read some of the books from the kind donation.
“We are really grateful for helping us fill our shelves with a wonderful variety of books in good condition,” Mr Lawakeli said.
He said these books would allow students and medical professionals to broaden their knowledge.
Books for PNG Kids chief executive officer Heather Doonan said a number of Australian educational institutions had donated the expensive books.
“We have been in existence for more than 10 years with the aim of helping young people, especially in remote areas,” Ms Doonan said.
She said although they were second-hand books, they were in very good condition which could help to the medical students in Fiji greatly.
Health Minister Dr Neil Sharma said they acknowledged and appreciated the donation.
“These are very expensive books and it will help the students to broaden their knowledge,” Dr Sharma said.
