Limiva’s Agony Continues

Limivia Marama yearns to go back to school.

But she can’t. Her wound has not completely healed.

Grandfather Kasia Koromogaci, 62, said he wanted Limiva to recover well before going back to school.

Limiva, six, a Year One student of Ghandi Bhawan Primary School in Lautoka, was involved in a road accident in late March. She was alleged to have been hit by a vehicle driven by a 35-year-old after she suddenly ran across the road.

Mr Koromogaci said the accident resulted in Limiva losing two toes on her left leg.

“Her toes had to be amputated after the vehicle tyre rolled on her leg and crushed the bones of her toes,” he said.

He said the school had been calling them to inquire why Limiva was not attending classes.

“She is ok, she can walk but it’s just her left leg that makes it hard for her to put her foot flat on the ground; the school came last week to visit her,” he said.

“It’s not that we are holding her back from her studies, it’s just that we want her leg to be fully healed before she goes back.”

He said they were saving up to provide for her because her mother was in Suva and the father wasn’t here.

“All we want now is the Police report,” he said.

“She’s a smart and strong-headed girl so we will try and get her back in school as soon as she recovers.”
