HELP has flowed in for young John Gary who is in need of a wheelchair.

The 13-year-old lad of Nadavaci Village in Natewa, whose plight was published in this newspaper this week, left school four years ago after his wheelchair broke.

Corporate bodies, former Fiji residents living overseas and other readers whose hearts have been touched from reading the story have offered either a wheelchair or other forms of assistance for John.

His dad, Lekesio Ramulo could not believe so many people had offered to help his son.

In an interview yesterday, Mr Ramulo said they had been praying for a new wheelchair.

He added years of prayers had finally been answered.

"Au va'avinavina'a va'alevu vei emudou na Fiji Times na vei vu'e levu dou sa mai solia vei noqu gone ena nomudou taba'a na nona italanoa" (I thank The Fiji Times for your great assistance in making known the story of my son which has brought him help)," he said.

Mr Ramulo thanked the good Samaritans for their kind hearts in showing concern for his son.

Those who wish to help can call 8207429.
