India has stepped in to help students of the Sangam College of Nursing and Health Care Education in Labasa.

The assistance will help in the procurement of books and other equipments

Acting Indian High Commissioner to Fiji, Vikrant Rattan was at the school yesterday to donate a total of $129,155 for the institute.

“The nursing school aims to promote excellent nursing education in Fiji by providing various courses in that discipline,” Mr Rattan said.

“All these trained professionals are badly needed in the health care sector of the country and that too at a faster rate to cater for the increasing population.”

He said India’s assistance was yet another step to further strengthen bilateral relations between two countries.

“I am certain that this grant will enhance productivity in the education as well as health care sectors.”

“It would improve our facilities and learning environment.”

The government of India has also been supportive in other areas including the upcoming general elections.
