One of the most challenging problems for millions of kids of undocumented workers here in USA is getting
medical assistance that they can afford. The millions of undocumented workers in USA as illegal as they are
on one hand provide a huge labor supply and one the other run the risk of not having all the benefits
including healthcare both for themselves and their kids.
Kids are the most sensitive issue in any society and it is heartening to know that US government is making
provisions in the law to accommodate the healthcare needs of kids of undocumented families.
Fijisun USA joins the various healthcare providers and New America Media in the campaign to educate

Like many undocumented workers several thousand citizens of South Pacific origin including Tonga, Samoa and Fiji Islands who most live in the great Bay Area are facing the same issues and problems of getting health care for their kids and many times have to go without any medical attention for want of knowledge and access to medical benefits.
The seminar gave hopeful information and seem to be offering help to many need ones.

Several leading doctors are already playing a significant role and helping the kids of undocumented workers.

The best way is to get in touch with your local health centers and centers to get more information
