The sounds of trumpet took the streets of Labasa by surprise as the Fiji Police Band lifted the spirits of the cyclone affected areas.

Community Policing officer, Ulaiyasi Talebula, said the Fiji Police Band arrived in Nabouwalu on Monday and visited affected areas to lift their spirits after Tropical Cyclone Yasa.

He said they aimed to entertain the frontliners to at least release their stress.

They also visited the hospitals and senior citizens’ home.

Mr Talebula said that people had sacrificed their family time and working through the festive season to get things back to normal.

The band will be in the Northern Division for a week.

Acting Medical Superintendent, Maikeli Mua, said the performance from the band lifted the spirits of the medical workers and patients.

Dr Mua said medical workers had been working 12-hour shifts even before TC Yasa, since COVID-19 pandemic.

“No single patient was asleep during the night of the cyclone, all the patients were awake, that shows the work that was carried out by our staff.

Dr Mua would like to thank the Fiji Police Band for the treat and look forward to more of it in the future.

He added that the surprise treat had the medical workers to step out and watch the performance which was also enjoyed by the patients at the hospital.
