The Fiji Cancer Society looks after more than 600 cancer patients

The Tappoo Group, in collaboration with international suppliers Panamex Group has today donated 100 cartons of PURE DAYS pull-up diapers to the Fiji Cancer Society in response to an urgent public appeal for help by the Society last week.

In making the appeal, the Society’s Program Manager Darisha Datt had highlighted that patients who were in need of pull up diapers were given adult diapers instead to cater for their need.

The Tappoo Group says PURE DAYS pull-up diapers have side panels that can be quickly opened to make removal easy and will be given to elderly cancer patients who also suffer from other underlying health issues such as diabetes and stroke and are unable to move around.

The Fiji Cancer Society looks after more than 600 cancer patients and provides adult diapers during weekly home visitations by nurses.

Tappoo Group Executive Director, Kaushal Tappoo says this donation will help the elderly cancer patients immensely.
