Famous Korean singer, Yoon Hyung-ju, who translated the renowned Fijian farewell song ‘Isa Lei’, wants to help Fijians build a better and more inclusive healthcare system.

He met the Minister for Health, Dr Neil Sharma, yesterday to discuss what areas the ministry needed help in and what they could offer for their upcoming projects.

“We want to help Fiji and we want to ensure accessibility of healthcare to better meet the patients’ needs,” Mr Yoon said.

He said relations between the two countries were good and was growing from strength to strength.

Dr Sharma said they had a very good working relationship with the government of the Republic of Korea.

“Fiji has benefited greatly from their assistance provided and over the years we have developed friendly relations,” he said.

He said they were grateful for the offer and they would closely look at areas which needed support and discuss about their projects soon.

“Earlier this year Korean specialists helped Fiji fight Soil Transmitted Helminthiases (STH) infections that normally affected the poorest and most deprived communities.”

Dr Sharma said these kinds of projects were very important because they needed to maintain sustainability.

“I believe that the relationship between the two countries will be further strengthened and deepened.”

Meanwhile, Mr Yoon donated more than 300 tooth brushes to the ministry.
