Services are expected to improve at the Valelevu Health Centre as the Rotary Club of Suva Peninsula Sunset has successfully completed its $30,000 upgrade of the health centre.

Club President Jason Chandra says this project is aimed at enhancing the facility's services and improving the patient experience, which included the installation of new benches for the waiting area, the donation of a new washing machine, new curtains for the emergency department, refurbishment and maintenance of washrooms, as well as the provision of a water pump and a concrete base for the water tank.

He says this initiative was made possible through generous funding from the Rotary Club of Suva Peninsula Sunset, with special thanks to their major donor, Champak Kapadia of Brijlal Fiji, who gave $20,000.

Chandra says they also extend their heartfelt gratitude to all members of the Rotary Club who participated in the fundraising efforts that brought this timely assistance to fruition.

He adds they would also like to acknowledge the contributions of their immediate past president, Gyaneshwar Prasad, who took this project on during his Rotary term, and Rotarian and Special Project’s Director Jai Kumar, who diligently oversaw the project's execution on behalf of their Club.

The club’s President says they would like to thank the Valelevu Health Centre Board of Visitors for their collaboration with the Rotary Club of Suva Peninsula Sunset on this project.

He says the Valelevu Health Centre serves a population of approximately 60,000 to 80,000 people, and their Club is humbled to support such an essential community resource.

Chandra says this assistance aligns with the Club’s focus areas, and they trust that these upgrades will significantly aid the health centre in continuing to provide vital health services to the residents along the Suva-Nausori corridor.
