CHANEL HOME OF COMPASSION
Our Fiji Sisters, trained nurses and caregivers provide all the necessary love, care and attention for the residents regardless of race or religion. They take patients from Hospital for Palliative care and some short term to give their Families a rest.
COMMUNITY ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT
There are many potential micro-businesses opportunities in Fiji but they often lack the capital that would allow them to start up or expand. Relatively small amounts of funding, along with some business training and mentoring, would allow these businesses to flourish, and this would have a considerable poverty reduction impact on the people and economies in these communities
DIABETES CARE ON WHEELS
Typically the population does not access healthcare for diabetes unless they face an emergency, such as, fatique, frequent urination, or foot ulcers. It is common for people diagnosed with diabetes 10 years ago not taking medication or changing their diet.

The footcare project has trained more than 200 nurses around Fiji. It has also saved 60% of foot ulcers cases from amputation. The biggest problem which not only faced at the clinic but around Fiji is patient presenting very late with their foot problems.
