MATERIAL AID DONATIONS
- Providing much-needed medical resources
Friends4Fiji has donated in excess of FJD$10,000 worth of biology, medical and surgical textbooks, anatomical models, posters, stethoscopes and neurological examination equipment to the medical students of Umanand Prasad School of Medicine (UPSM) since 2009, in support of their continued clinical learning.
volunteer medical camps
- Sharing learning experiences in challenging settings
Since 2010, Friends4Fiji members have participated in conferences and week-long voluntary medical camps, travelling and camping with UPSM colleagues to assist volunteer overseas doctors in the running of a successful camp-clinic that accesses some of the remote and poor villages in Fiji.
Study tours to Melbourne
- Fully sponsored travel opportunities in Melbourne's top hospitals
We extend our hospitality to our friends and colleagues from Fiji to travel to Melbourne for clinical placements, where they work alongside their Monash counterparts in a medical specialty of their choice in some of the world's finest hospitals.
fundraisers and functions
- Raising donations and awareness in engaging ways
Functions are regularly organised to increase awareness about global health issues facing the Pacific, especially Fiji, in a fun and engaging manner, while raising funds to enable us to continue our exciting plans. Our annual Friday Night with Friends4Fiji is always a hugely popular event.
