Children’s Heart Hospital

Congenital Heart Disease

About 200 children in Fiji and 2500 children in Pacific Islands are born with congenital heart disease (CHD) each year

Low Morality

Due to inaccessibility to hospitals or the unaffordability of parents, CHD is one of the leading cause of neonatal deaths in these nations

No Pediatric Facility

Currently, there is NO pediatric cardiac hospital or services in Fiji or in any of the other Pacific Island nations to treat the affected children.

The Children’s Heart Hospital will be one of the largest projects ever undertaken by a Non-Government Organisation in Fiji’s history.

Village Outreach Program

Health In Kind volunteers are involved in the medical outreach program alongside the “Health on Wheels” group to rural villages around Suva. Frequently seeing over 200 patients in a day, services provided include nursing, diabetes education, nutrition, medical reviews, dental, optometry, pharmacy, women’s health, physiotherapy, and counseling services. Health In Kind also supports the project by providing medical and dental supplies.

There is such an overwhelming need for health care in the rural villages. I was astounded at the poor state of people’s health, and furthermore, the lack of understanding of its seriousness. It’s vital that the next generation do not follow these same paths. The Fijian’s were some of the most beautiful, generous and warm people I have ever come across. I can’t wait to return!

Dr Georgina Brunton

The thriving of a nation and society lies in the inclusion of those living in the remote areas. The medical outreach program bridges the gap by providing health care that is accessible, affordable and acceptable to all its locals.
