Auckland surgeon donates $1 million to help Pasifika students become doctors
An Auckland surgeon and his wife have donated $1 million to help Pasifika students qualify as doctors.
Aucklanders John and Rose Dunn are a little self-conscious about having an endowment fund named after themselves.
Their $1 million John and Rose Dunn Pasifika Fund will contribute to course fees and accommodation costs through the University of Auckland School of Medicine Foundation.
Although the Dunns have always been philanthropic, they’re normally quiet givers and were reluctant to be interviewed or have the Herald name the amount donated.
