Lockington's Everyday Fiji ... Life Goes On
This is my reply to Hishant Singh’s letter on the state of Lautoka Hospital and I thank him for it.
Volunteers Help Out
The hospital services overall performance in Fiji has been pushed to the limit. Everyday there are more than 200 to 300 people there to be seen at the General Out Patients Department in the Lautoka. The hospital is in dire need of a general uplift as Hishant suggests.
At one time we had introduced the pay system but it failed to work and was stopped, perhaps the pay system could assist in generating much needed money. The hospital could do with assistance and my group of friends go up to the hospital to lend a hand by cleaning and painting places that are in dire need. As for the blood stained sheets, perhaps Hishant could take photos and send them to me to see. Normally we do not advertise our volunteer work, as we are just a bunch of friends who often gather to drink grog at the Lautoka market. We have also secured 5 nebulisers which have been donated by people who wish to remain anonymous. 9 more are on their way from abroad.
I invite Hishant Singh and anyone in Lautoka to join us in helping our hospital. Remember its our hospital and not the Ministry of Health’s or the Prime Minister’s, or anybody in particular, it is ours.
I can be reached on email, land line and via mobile and even Facebook to arrange to meet and go up and help out.
