Local inter-island ferry service provider Goundar Shipping Limited (GSL) has gone an extra mile by offering more than just shipping services.

The company has teamed up with a team of medical professionals from overseas for a week-long tour to various islands in the country, providing free health check-ups.

This is expected from March 27 next year.

The 90-member medical team is said to be from the United States of America, Canada, New Zealand and Australia.

GSL managing director and owner George Goundar said that the confirmed islands that would be visited are located in the Lomaiviti Group.

“This will be Ovalau and the Koro,” he said.

Mr Goundar highlighted that this is part of the company’s corporate social responsibility role – that is to give back positively to the people as they play a major part in their daily services.

“It is our way to give back to the community. These medical teams will be travelling on our vessels and all expenses for accommodation will be looked after by GSL,” he added.

The medical team had in the last five years visited the two mainland’s Viti Levu and Vanua Levu.

“These medical professionals will meet the needs of people as they have the facilities and expertise in different areas,” he said.

Mr Goundar hopes that the villages listed for the visit will take advantage of the opportunity to benefit from the free services that will be provided.
