This follows on from my report in the previous bulletin.

The photos above are showing the rebuild of a burnt out building in the hospital grounds which has been declared sound for such rebuild.

The cost of the rebuild will be met in part by the Ministry of Health who will provide the materials. The estimated cost nett of  materials is $25k plus fit out which to a large extent could be provided for by DIK,  e.g. furniture and furnishings.

The revamped building will be to provide a “house” for birthing mothers and family members of hospital patients – (Ronald McDonald House concept) and includes 5 bedrooms, kitchen and lounge.

The Taveuni Rotary team of builders have amongst other activities built 9 teacher houses (photo attached shows 2) comparable to any newly built house in New Zealand.

Building this “house” is now a relatively simple routine undertaking for them.

The purpose of this post is to solicit donations to ensure that this activity gets underway and be completed by June 2018.

Pakuranga Rotary has been generous, recently donating $5500 but there may be others who would consider making a personal contribution.
