Girl, 14, looks after grandma

A 14-YEAR-OLD girl who lives alone with and is the sole caregiver for her bedridden grandmother believes God answered her prayers when the Bula Festival Trust gave her blankets and other basic necessities yesterday.

Her 65-year-old grandmother, Salaseini Tivi, was not present at the event.

She suffered a stroke a few years ago and remains immobile.

Ms Vosailagi, a Sabeto District School Year 8 student, said her mother Ivamere Vosailagi died in 2015 and "my father lives somewhere in Tailevu".
