Shriners help three children

TWO more children have been given the opportunity to travel to Honolulu, Hawaii, for reconstructive surgery at Shriners Hospital for Children.

Leaving earlier this week were Reea Singh and Jonetani Ratutikarua, the latest recipients of an all-expenses paid trip to the hospital.

Shriner's co-ordinator in the West, Rob Leacock, said 10-year-old Reea would have surgery on her left hand and foot.

He said she was expected to be in Honolulu for four months.

"This is the second trip for Jonetani who first travelled to Hawaii five years ago," Mr Leacock said.

Mr Leacock was in Hawaii recently and had accompanied a third child, seven-year-old Janvi Devi.

"We were able to help Janvi and her mother settle into their accommodation."
