Help for children

Felix Chaudhary
Thursday, April 24, 2014

ABOUT 180 children from across the Western Division attended clinics held by Shriners Hospitals International earlier this month.

Rob Leacock from Shriners clinics is in the country to determine which children are eligible for orthopedic care, burn treatment, cleft lip and palate care and spinal cord injury rehabilitation.

Mr Leacock said 23 children from the West had been placed on a waiting list for corrective surgery.

The children will be flown to Hawaii, where one of 22 Shriners Hospitals is situated, and provided surgery and recovery free.

Last year, about 120 young boys and girls attended clinics in the West.

Mr Leacock acknowledged the assistance provided by The Fiji Times in getting the message out regarding their clinics.
