Boxes of personal protective equipment donated by Sydney Adventist Hospital have arrived in Fiji.
The supplies, which were shipped by Sanitarium Health and Wellbeing, have been welcomed by church leaders and members.
“I want to express our sincere appreciation to the South Pacific Division, especially Sydney Adventist Hospital and Sanitarium Health and Wellbeing, for the personal protective equipment that we received,” Trans Pacific Union Mission (TPUM) president Pastor Maveni Kaufononga said.
“This has been distributed to our staff at TPUM, a share is on its way to Fulton Adventist University College, and the bulk of it has been given to Fiji Mission for their staff and the members.
“This PPE will certainly assist us at a time when COVID-19 is spreading quickly in our communities. Thank you for thinking of us and continue to pray for us. Blessings as we take refuge in the arms of God.”
Fiji continues to struggle with high numbers of COVID-19 cases. Churches and schools remain closed.
