Mr Wagner said the company was proud to donate to a worthy cause such as children’s health and expressed his well wishes and support to the hardworking staff at Colonial War Memorial Hospital.

WAGNER: “While we’re sad to be leaving Fiji, we wanted to do our part for corporate social responsibility by donating to the paediatrics ward.”

Hospital paediatrician, Dr Elisapeci Tuibeqa said that the money will go towards maintaining essential equipment.

TUIBEQA: “This generous donation will be used for replacing equipment, which is very expensive.”

The cheque was received by Mr Soro Toutou, General Manager CWMH, alongside other department staff, who expressed their gratitude to Mr Wager and his colleagues for their generous gesture.
