Proceeds from the Fashion Council of Fiji Charity ball at the Grand Pacific Hotel in Suva today will go towards the Loloma Foundation.
The Loloma Foundation is a California based NGO that brings free surgical and dental services to the rural areas of Fiji.
Loloma Foundation runs on donations.
Board Member, Linda Kwansy says the donations help bring specialised surgeries to those that need it most but can’t afford it.
“The Fiji Fashion Council will be donating their funds that they raise this weekend to help fund our 2019 patients so that they can come to have surgeries.”
Every year, for eight years now – the Loloma Foundation brings in specialised doctors from the US to the Waiyevo Hospital in Taveuni where they operate on around 250 patients over four to five weeks.
The donations help fund the travel, accommodation and meals for the patients who were screened from all over the country.
