To Whom It May Concern.
Thank you very much for your support of the Friends of the Pacific Foundation. This letter sets out a brief background to, and the objectives of, FPF.
FPF is a New Zealand-based trust that seeks to improve the health outcomes for the poor and needy people of Fiji and the rest of the Pacific by focussing on three key objectives:
- To coordinate the delivery of a range of medical services by volunteers, both in teams and as individuals. This is to ensure the delivery of medical expertise that is either not available or to enable existing staff to take leave or be up-skilled.
- To coordinate the collection and delivery of medical equipment, pharmaceuticals and consumables to hospitals and medical clinics. This is through a network of suppliers of new and reconditioned supplies.
- To coordinate the upgrading or improvement of medical facilities.
To date this work has resulted in teams of cardiac surgeons, obstetrics and gynaecology specialists and general practitioners delivering services in Fiji. We have arranged and facilitated the delivery of 12 containers of medical equipment to hospitals and medical clinics in the Western Division. We have also led the upgrading of two theatres at Lautoka Hospital.
As with many charities, FPF has limited funding and seeks sponsorship or financial assistance with its projects. It seeks to form partnerships with others who share our goal of relieving the suffering of so many through the Pacific.
We seek your help in our project to collect much needed Mobility Equipment as set out in our attached poster. I would be delighted to discuss this further with you, should you need more information.
