A Friend in Fiji

We are two kids from Turning Point School. We are raising money to help a seven-year-old boy, Tini, to fix his club foot.  We will use the money to bring him to the United States for the surgery. We first met Tini on a service learning trip in Fiji.   One night we were playing "Duck Duck Goose", we all noticed that he was really limping, so we talked to his dad and asked him what happened. He explained and said that Tini was born with a club foot, and also that his grandfather had two club feet. The next day we discussed putting together a project to help this boy.  This will benefit this Tini for the rest of his life.  He will also be able to have a childhood full of laughter and running without pain.   The village that he lives in is on a remote island.   It is difficult to access medical services, especially a complicated procedure like he needs.  The Children's Hospital in Los Angeles has a program that we can work with.  We just need to figure out a way to help the family with the transportation costs.  We would be grateful for your donation to help Tini and his family.
