Cama Kaitani, 70, of Navulokani Settlement, Naitasiri was grateful to the Vodafone Fiji Foundation after receiving a brand new 16- inch wheelchair.

Mr Kaitani’s plight for a new mobility device was captured by a foundation trustee, Divik Deo who then involved the foundation’s staff to help him.

“I desperately needed a wheelchair as the one I have been using broke down and that made moving around very difficult,” Mr Kaitani said.

He said he had been on a wheelchair for seven years and had received his first wheelchair from his daughter in 2007 but it broke down.  For the past two years Mr Kaitani said he could not move around much and they could not afford a new one.

“Words cannot describe what I am feeling now and I’m really happy that Vodafone has provided and delivered the wheelchair.

The foundation’s executive, Ambalika Devi, said mobility aids assist in walking or otherwise improve the mobility of people with mobility impairment.

“The devices have been made available to the members of the public who have been identified for their special mobility needs,” Ms Devi said.

She said they would continue to welcome requests from the needy for mobility devices and make arrangements for delivery directly to the needy.
