“I will work with the foundation. The Sai Prema Foundation has been serving the poor and underprivileged people of Fiji through various medical, educational, and social services projects and initiatives.”

Rabuka says the free children’s hospital brought a great sigh of relief to a lot of parents, as treatment overseas is costly.

“I’m told that the cost of overseas treatment would be in excess of Fiji’s $100,000. All surgeries and treatments are completely free of charge. As a matter of great pride, Fiji is the first nation in the Pacific and Oceania region to have such a hospital.”

Sri Sathya Sai Sanjeevani Children’s Hospital has been able to assist with 277 serious heart cases among kids and help them through free operations.
