Gary wishes for new wheels

Luke Rawalai
Wednesday, July 16, 2014

FOR the past four years, 13-year-old John Gary has not been able to attend school because his wheelchair broke.

And his freedom of movement that he once enjoyed on the wheelchair has now been limited to only reaching the verandah of his home.

In 2009, his only hope of movement being the wheelchair broke after the frames rusted.

So while his friends enjoy the village ground at Nadavaci in Natewa, Cakaudrove, Johnny, as he is known among friends, can only watch and wish he could join them.

Johnny says he used to enjoy a normal life when his wheelchair was still working because it also took him to school at Vusasivo Primary School.

He said he could only wish for a new wheelchair.

He said his dad told him that he had asked for assistance from organisations.

He said he would not lose faith because someone would hear of his plight one day.
