SOLOMON FOREST ASSOCIATION STEPS IN TO HELP HOSPITAL
The Solomon Forest Association (SFA) has come to the aid of the National Referral Hospital, paying the full cost of freight charges and associated costs for a shipment of much-need hospital supplies and equipment from New Zealand.
In a statement issued in Honiara, the SFA said it remitted about $37,000 to ‘Take My Hands’, a registered charitable trust, which is coordinating the supplies in New Zealand.
The money remitted would go towards paying freight and handling charges for a 40-foot container being loaded with hospital bedding, wheelchairs, crutches and other materials for the National Referral Hospital.
The statement said the SFA decided to make a one-off donation after it was approached by the Office of the Prime Minister for assistance.
The partnership goes back a long way and SFA is pleased to provide the assistance for the NRH in support of its vital service to the community.
