2020 proved to be a difficult time for the activities of the Orthopacifix charitable trust as the Covid pandemic spread worldwide. We continue to be very grateful to our supporters and sponsors during this time. While we were unable to travel to the Pacific over the past 12 months, we have been able to continue our support to the Pacific through:

  • Provision of orthopaedic equipment/resources to Samoa

  • Online/Webinar teaching PIOA

  • Mentoring PIOA trainees

  • Financial support to PIOA trainees in registrar training posts in New Zealand (Dr Mark Rokobuli in Wellington/Dr Areta Samuelu in Tauranga)

  • Co-funding with NZOA the Pacific Islands Ambassador to the NZOA ASM
