“It was really painful news.”
This was stressed by Vilisoni Inia when he was told by doctors his one-year-old son will not be able to play and walk like his two other children.
Inia said despite the hurtful news, they knew there was light at the end of the tunnel.
“The news was given to me and my wife, we were advised that he will not run around like my 3-year-old daughter. It was really a painful news, but at the same time, we had to dig deep inside to find the courage to make life a better place for him.”
The government today launched a new Pediatric Mobility Service in Suva which will help children diagnosed with cerebral palsy that allows them to live a normal life.
Acting Prime Minister, Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum says that interest in early intervention is pivotal.
“If we are able to make the right intervention at the right time, we’ll then be able to give them that level of self-worth, of dignity and also make them proactive members of our society.”
This was made possible after the Fulton Hogan Hiways donated sixty seven mobility devices that will help children at the Early Intervention Centre.
New classrooms were also opened today.
