Medical Services Pacific Services in the rural areas are expected to be uplifted after the non-government organization received two twin cab vehicles with trailers worth $189,773 from the Japanese Government.

The Deputy Head of Mission for the Japanese Embassy, Tanaka Kenichiro, says this project signifies the strengthened relationship between Fiji and Japan towards the welfare of women and girls who were sexually abused.

He says they assisted MSP because it had suffered from a lack of a vehicle to access rural and remote areas to serve women and girls in Fiji.

Kenichiro says the assistance by Japan will improve the healthcare in Fiji and will also benefit the women and children in the remote areas.

The Country Director for MSP Doctor Ashna Shaleen says since their establishment in 2010, this is a milestone achievement as it supports their services in the rural and remote areas.

Shaleen says they have four clinics in Fiji and they have serviced 3,065 Fijians from every division.
