New wing for Labasa hospital
It's a good hospital at times - our youngest son was born there a long time ago, and a very long time ago Peceli himself was born there when it was brand-new! I hope it is functioning well these days but Fiji does have difficulty getting and keeping staff, and often the overseas doctors don't speak Fijian or Hindi which is a problem.
