Two Fijian migrant nurses to Canada have donated $2000 to assist the Fiji Nursing Association with the establishment of a mini-library at their office.
One of the donors, Mereama Seru, visited the Fiji Nursing Association Hall in Suva yesterday to officially hand over their contribution.
Ms Seru said she was very passionate about her sisters back home and most importantly their work of looking after of people’s health. She believes that nursing is a calling and not a career. Mrs Seru had served in Fiji as a nurse for 18 years before migrating with her family to Canada in 2003.
“I am working with two Fijians in the same hospital at Nath Battleford, Saskatchewan in Canada.
“We are hoping and willing to contribute more to the association with regards to the building of more trained nurses in Fiji,” Mrs Seru said.
Association general secretary Salanieta Matiavi said this donation was the first to be received from overseas nurses.
“This donation will help set up a mini-library in the nursing hall for our nurses.”
Mr and Mrs Seru will be flying back to Canada tomorrow.
