Sustainable Mahogany Industry and Pacific Western Timbers yesterday made a $30,000 donation to Colonial War Memorial (CWM) Hospital.

The money was donated towards hospital’s pediatrics unit.

CWM Hospital head of department of pediatrics unit Dr Ilisapeci Vereti said: “We are always happy when any donation is received by the hospital.

“The money goes towards the welfare of the children who are admitted to hospitals around the country. We use that money to buy medication for children and equipments for the children’s ward,” she said.

Ms Vereti said they usually buy medicines that were not available in Fiji or out of stock.

“I would like to thank Sustainable Mahogany Industry and Pacific Western Timbers for their donation towards the hospital,” she said.

Sustainable Mahogany Industry and Pacific Western Timbers chief executive officer John Wagner said: “This was our sixth year we are making donation towards the hospital. This is part of our social responsibility.”

Mr Wagner is winding up his timber businesses here.

Mr Wagner is chairman and chief executive officer of Sustainable Mahogany Industries Ltd, the first company granted a license to use the Fiji Pure Mahogany brand, and Pacific Western Timbers (Fiji).

Sustainable Mahogany donated $25,000, while Pacific Western Timbers donated $5000.
