The Republic of Fiji Military Forces personnel is currently undergoing a trauma healing workshop.

While officiating at the opening of the workshop at the Queen Elizabeth Barracks in Nabua this morning, Commander Major-General Ro Jone Kalouniwai said the training is centered on assisting personnel that go through various forms of trauma while serving in the RFMF, especially when out on peacekeeping duties.

Kalouniwai says it’s crucial for the participants to learn as much as they can during the course in order to help soldiers and sailors improve their lives and, at the same time, promote good health physically, mentally, and spiritually.
