Assistant Health Minister keeps promises made to Bureta Village

The Hon. Assistant Minister for Health & Medical Services Mrs Veena Bhatnagar has been able to successfully address issues raised by Bureta Village, Levuka during her last visit.

Mrs Bhatnagar has visited Bureta Village earlier this year for Health Public Consultation during which the people from Bureta had raised issues on the condition of the road, drainage and water supply.

The Hon. Assistant Health Minister for Health & Medical Services returned to Bureta Village to keep her promise of installing a water tank.

To this effect, Mrs Bhatnagar yesterday officially handed over a 10000 Litre water tank and wheel chair to Bureta Village. This donation was made by the LDS Charity who had also donated wheelchairs to the Levuka Hospital earlier.

Mrs Bhatnagar said she was keen to assist Bureta Village and was identifying ways in which she could assist.

“Upon return to office I was very fortunate to receive a call from LDS church. During our meeting I came to know that LDS did a lot of charity work which includes providing water tanks. I genuinely wanted to help the people of Bureta Village and God had sent the LDS charity right to my door step. There and then LDS promised to assist with the donation of a water tank and here we are to handover this essential donation”.

The Hon. Assistant Health & Medical Services Minister Mrs Veena Bhatnagar had also notified the relevant Ministry on the road condition and drainage issue raised by Bureta Village, which today has been addressed.

Representatives from Bureta Village were humbled and thanked the Hon. Assistant Minister for Health & Medical Services for her timely intervention.

The Health Ministry remains committed to improving and contributing towards improving health services delivery and the overall health of the people of Fiji.
