In a bid to help eradicate and prevent the spread of dengue fever the TISI Sangam School of Nursing yesterday staged a clean-up drive at the Labasa Divisional Hospital.

School staff and students were out in numbers cleaning up around the hospital and living quarters.

The institute’s acting director, Dharmendra Naidu, said it was a community outreach programme in partnership with the Northern Health Services.

“We wanted to give back to the community by engaging ourselves in this cleanup campaign as it is a school’s effort,” Mr Naidu said.

“All the undergraduate students and staff are participating in this two-hour session around the hospital compound and living quarters.

“We targeted vessels that were holding water and we found more than 40 plastics but generally the compound was clean.

“The event was also dedicated to a former graduate staff nurse Ruth who was transferred to Taveuni and later died of dengue fever at the Labasa hospital.”

Meanwhile, 100 students took part and they thanked Dr Mikaele Mua for their kind partnership.
