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!
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.
