Budget Pharmacy Limited of Nadi donated medicines such as panadol, amoxicillin and brufen medication worth $15,000.00 to assist the Government of Vanuatu in relief efforts after the devastation caused by Tropical Cyclone PAM.
The Company’s proprietor, Mr Ajay Raniga, said the donation would fulfill immediate needs such as securing hygiene and medical care and supplies which is vital in preventing the spread of potential health problems and diseases.
The Ministry of Rural & Maritime Development and National Disaster Management permanent secretary Mr Setareki Tale welcomed the timely assistance.
“The donation is very timely given the fact that Vanuatu is still in the initial stages of recovery. This will certainly add value to the efforts of rehabilitation,” Mr Tale said.
The donation was made possible through negotiations by the Government member of Parliament, Hon. Alvick Maharaj with Budget Pharmacy Ltd.
