A gift of a wheelchair and a computer

from Peceli
Here are two photos I took when I visited a Labasa family. The Geelong Donation in Kind had given this girl a wheelchair and a computer a couple of months ago. the girl is rom Bulileka village and also in the photo is the District Officer Northern.

What wonderful gifts!

My father in law (previous marriage) had MS. As his condition gradually worsened over many years, having a wheel chair and a computer were, if you'll forgive the expression, a godsend, giving him a freedom he would never have otherwise been able to enjoy.

The girl is overjoyed Peceli told me, that she can now be wheeled to church. I wonder though about her education as I don't think she has been going to school. She needs a relative or helper to get her started on the computer. Over here in Geelong many disabled young adults go to TAFE (Tertiary and Further Education) to the computer labs and do special tasks with really super software according to their ability.
Obtaining a wheelchair and a computer is the first step anyway.
