The Ministry of Health and Medical Services are in dire need of bed linens such as bedsheets and pillowcases for their Isolation Centres.

This is because used bed linens from the isolation centres cannot be reused as compared to the public hospitals.

In an effort to reduce the risk of spreading COVID-19 further in Fiji, used linens form the isolation centres have to be disposed of properly.

From a business continuity Viber group, Permanent Secretary for Industry, Trade and Tourism Shaheen Ali shared: “If you have access to such items, including mattresses and pillows, your donation will be highly appreciated.

Fiji Airways

A Fiji Airways spokesperson was among the first to respond.

“We have five bales of blanket fabric which can be cut up.

“We also have five bales for sheets as well.

“All in blue colour and can be picked up from FJ office”

Fiji Water

Fiji Water lawyer Marigold Moody also quickly offered they would donate mattresses, bedsheets and pillowcases.

“We would like to offer 500 set of mattresses, sheets and pillowcases, which we will purchase from Comfort Home Furnishing.
