PATIENTS at the Children's Ward at the Colonial War Memorial Hospital were treated to a surprise yesterday when the country manager of Helipro (Fiji) Limited, Graeme Hedge, and his wife visited the hospital with gifts for the children.

Waiqanake lad Waisale Waqa, who has been admitted in the hospital since Tuesday, was all smiles after receiving a stuffed Easter bunny and egg. The Year 4 student of Waiqanake District School could not contain his joy as he received his gifts.

Waisale said although he had to spend the Easter weekend in a hospital bed, he was happy that he was among other children who received the Easter gifts.

His grandmother Soko Koroi, who was beside his hospital bed when the Helipro team visited, said the timing was just perfect.

"I'm so happy to see him smile," she said. Mr Hedge said the visit to the hospital was special.
