CWM Hospital Gets Donations

According to a survey by the Spinal Injury Association (SIA) 70 – 80 per cent of the population goes through some form of disability before they die, says Vodafone ATH Fiji Foundation executive, Ambalika Kutty.

She made the comments at the handing over ceremony of patients’ bed to the board of visitors at the Colonial War Memorial Hospital yesterday.

“The hand-over includes three hospital beds, one gurney, three commodes, two doctor’s trolleys, three walkers and three shower chairs worth $20,000,” Ms Kutty said.

She said the donation had been possible with the assistance of Physionet Australia which worked closely with SIA.

“Vodafone Fiji, through its charity arm, the Vodafone Fiji Foundation, has a proud record of contributing back to the community.”

Ms Kutty said there was a real need to serve the needs of the disabled person.

“Our contribution is to supplement and complement the Government and other like-minded organisations for the needs of the disabled person.”

She said it certainly made business more meaningful and satisfying when they made a real difference to the lives of ordinary people.

CWM Hospital medical superintendent, Dr Jemesa Tudravu, said they were very grateful for the kind donation.
