Combine Good Works
and Your Passion for Diving

Most people think of Fiji as an island paradise, but there are many children in area villages that are in tremendous need of medical, dental and optometric care. Join a team of medical professionals on a journey of compassion and passion.

The children and families of Koro Village, Fiji, have limited access to medical, dental and optometric care, screening and services. Our goal is to bring doctors, dentists, optometrists, nurses and their support staffs to Fiji May 5 to 14, 2011. During our stay each team will conduct four afternoons providing screening and treatment for the village children and family members.

Divers, non-divers, fishermen, nature lovers are all welcome on this mission.

We'll stay at the Matava Eco-Resort. Located on the island of Kadavu, Matava is a secluded, manicured dive resort adjacent the Great Astrolabe Reef, one of the most renowned dive destinations in the Pacific. Our stay will include 10 dives, including the world famous Manta dive. Matava also boasts great deep sea fishing, surfing, sea kayaking and snorkeling.
