WE NEED YOUR HELP
Since the formation of the Friends of Fiji Heart Foundation (FOFHF) in 2006, the Foundation has sent a mission to Fiji for each successive year to provide FREE cardiac surgery to the underprivileged people of Fiji.
Over the years the Foundation’s focus has expanded to include open heart surgery, pacemaker checks and implants, angiography, stenting, etc. Since 2006, treatments worth over NZ$10m have been performed with ZERO administrative costs.
The mission involves sending a volunteer team of over 55 doctors, technicians and nurses who give up to 3 weeks of their time to provide the skills and expertise that are not present but needed so critically in Fiji.
The Mission Team ships in excess of 15 tonnes of equipment and supplies from New Zealand and practically sets up a cardiac surgery unit including an Intensive Care Unit (ICU), recovery ward, etc. within the hospital.
The operating cost of undertaking this annual life giving exercise requires source funding, in cash or kind, in excess of NZ$200,000 each year. Against this treatment worth over NZ$2m is achieved. (This cost does not include the volunteer time from the skilled medical team, the administration team and the Trustees).
This would not have been possible without the generous support of people like yourselves. We request you to join our friendship network and help us through your generous contribution.
The Foundation needs your valuable support to continue work towards this worthy cause.
