Sai Prema Foundation
It is indeed an honour to have the opportunity to serve one’s motherland and its people. The Trustees and volunteers of Sai Prema Foundation Fiji are deeply humbled to be able to make a difference to the lives of the poor and underprivileged people of Fiji through its Medicare, Educare and Sociocare initiatives.
Sai Prema Foundation Fiji was officially launched by the Acting Prime Minister of Fiji, Hon. Aiyaz
Sayed-Khaiyum on 19th August 2016. We are proud to be a Non-Government Organisation (NGO) working in association with the Government of Fiji on various initiatives in complementing their projects and policies in fulfilling a need or a void in society. The uniqueness of our Foundation is that every volunteer serves out of a desire to serve and help make a difference and is a volunteer without any financial gain or remuneration.
The three-pronged vision that governs the foundation is highlighted in these three ideals:
(1) To promote physical and mental well-being among the underprivileged, through Sociocare
and Medicare initiatives;
(2) To raise people’s understanding of human values, in a world that is increasingly
challenged by a lack of humanity;
(3) To promote love, peace and unity among all Fijians, and promote better spiritual wellbeing.
In this short span of 12 months, the Foundation has successfully impacted the underprivileged and needy people of Fiji with the following initiatives:
Gift of Life – providing free heart surgeries to the Children of Fiji
Medical Scholarship – a Pediatric Cardiology scholarship to train Fiji-based Doctors
Health on Wheels – serving the rural population of Fiji through regular free Medical Camps
Sai Annapoorna – distributing free food & clothing to poor families
Be A Hero – blood collection drives across the towns and cities in Fiji
Children of God – looking after the needs of Orphaned children
Help in Kind – Disaster or need response initiatives
To coincide with our first year Anniversary we are launching four new projects to further our reach and impact into society:
Control D – a Diabetes awareness campaign
Heart Beat – a Child Heart Screening initiative
You Are Not Alone – a Mental Health awareness program
Sai Cares – an Employment initiative for underprivileged women
In the very near future, we will embark upon two monumental projects:
Sai Prema Ashram – a Global Centre for Love & Peace in Pacific Harbour
Sri Sathya Sai Sanjeevani Medical Centre – a free Medical Centre in the heart of Suva with the aim to expand this into South Pacific’s first Pediatric Cardiac Super Speciality Hospital.
