Free Church of Tonga Career and Health Day

On 24 September 2011, Registered Nurse Fifita Atirai, Clinical Family Navigator Vaisiliva Vahaakola and Community Liaison Joseph Liava'a were invited to attend the Career and Health Day 2011 organised by the Free Church of Tonga on Favona Road, Mangere.

Fifita and Vaisiliva promoted the cellulitis (serious skin infection or 'pala' in Tongan) and oral health project, gave free blood pressure and blood sugar tests, as well as encouraged the youth from the Church into careers in health care.

One of the highlights of the Day was watching the youth from the Church receive scholarships to study nursing and other allied health careers. A special "malo 'aupito" (thank you) to Reverend 'Ifalame Teisi for organising such a worthwhile event and for inviting us to share in the celebrations.
