Thirty-seven children from the Dilkusha Home orphanage in Nausori were given a special medical check-up at the Sri Sai Sanjeevani Medical Centre in Nasese, Suva, on Saturday.

Senior caregiver for the Home Vasiti Volirua said they were blessed to have a free medical clinic and the children were given special attention for their health.

Ms Volirua said the medical centre, better known as the Sai Prema Foundation, held a similar medical clinic at the orphanage last year.

She said this year they were invited to visit the clinic in Suva where they would have their full medical check-up, including a dental check.

Sri Sathya Sai Sanjeevani Medical Centre acting medical co-ordinator Namrata Tappoo said while free medical clinics had been organised by the Sai Prema Foundation through its “Children of God” Project, yesterday’s clinic was special because it was the Home’s first visit to the centre.

Ms Tappoo said the project aimed to care for the needs of Fiji’s orphaned children.

She said “This is the first dedicated clinic (for the Home) at the centre and it certainly will not be the last.”

Meanwhile, general practitioners conducted full general checks, the dietician discussed the importance of a good diet and healthy lifestyle choices and volunteer dentists, including a team from Colgate Palmolive and mascot Dr Rabbit demonstrated the importance of oral hygiene.
