VANISHA Goundar of Suva is a recipient of one of the best health care from Shriner's Hospital in Hawaii where she received reconstruction surgery to her limbs.
According to the hospital's representative to the Pacific, Rob Leacock, the young girl had surgery to her left hand and knee during their second visit to the hospital.
"Vanisha Goundar and her mum returned from their second trip to Hawaii for surgery," said Mr Leacock.
"The first trip in 2006 was one and a half months long and Vanisha had surgeries on both of her legs.
"This trip, she had surgery on her left hand and left knee.
She already has more mobility in both her hand and knee from the recent surgery.
"They were in Honolulu for three months on this trip, mostly staying at the Family Centre at the hospital in between the two surgeries and physiotherapy."
Another young child fortunate enough to receive treatment was Angel Kumar.
"Angel Kumar was born with two club feet and had never walked up to about two years old," said Mr Leacock.
"At Shriner's, they operated on both feet then casted the feet in hard casts to straighten out the feet.
"Now Angel is wearing strap on splints that can be removed for bathing, and can walk using a small walker."
Mr Leacock said among those who assisted in ensuring the two girls went to Hawaii were the US Embassy in Suva, staff of the CWM and Lautoka hospitals, the Health Ministry, Fiji Airways and Shriner's Hospital volunteers.
