As part of the recent festive season, the Fiji High Commission in New Delhi, India organised a thanksgiving dinner for the mission staff and their families, together with the Fijians who are in India as visiting patients and their caregivers.

The program held at the Fiji’s High Commission in India, was organised in recognition of the New Year’s and Christmas messages of unity, togetherness and prosperity.

A total of 35 Fijians who are currently in India for medical treatments from six different hospitals were accompanied by their families and caregivers as part of the Christmas celebrations.

The patients were from Batra Hospital, Max Hospitals, Apollo Hospital, PSRI, Forties, BLK and Artemis Hospital.

Speaking at the event, Fiji’s High Commissioner to India, His Excellency Mr Yogesh Punja said that Christmas was an opportune time for the Fijians in India to get together as one family.

He added that the program has been organised in the spirit of compassion and care for the Fijians in India who are away from their families in Fiji and also took the opportunity to convey his “best wishes for a prosperous New Year”.

The hospital international liaison officers and their patients thanked the Fiji High Commission in India and the ‘Team Fiji’ for organising this opportunity to get together and celebrate Christmas with the Fijian families in New Delhi, India.

The event actually brought back fond memories of Fiji for the Fijian families in India and the celebrations concluded with a ‘Taralala’ (Fijian Dance”)
