DISABLED Papua New Guinean writer Francis Nii was assisted to regain his health last year by the donations of many PNG Attitude readers.
And Francis has now received a fully adjustable hospital bed gifted by the Rotary Club of Toowong in Brisbane and once again transported into the Highlands by the redoubtable Terry Shelley.
In addition to the bed for Francis, the Club – whose project was spearheaded by Murray Bladwell – has also provided an additional bed to Kundiawa General Hospital, which is Francis’s home.
“Unfortunately, we could not send the upmarket electrically controlled beds as Francis said the power supply to the hospital was unreliable,” said Murray.
In addition to the beds, the Rotary Club also provided mattresses and bed linen.
“Thank you so much my wantok, Murray,” said Francis. “I am so happy and so is my family.”
