A “second source” of the famous healing water has been identified at Delakado Village, Dawasamu, Tailevu.

From Delakado, it’s a five-minute drive up the road to Natadradrave Village, the original source.

It was revealed that both water sources feed from a dam in the mountains. Water flows to Okanasei creek near Natadradave, but in Delakado it flows to their taps.

People started flocking to Delakado from Sunday.

Villager Menausi Druguvale of Taukeinikoro clan of the Yavusa Voni,    claimed a man was healed of his blindness after he drank water from the tap in the village.

“The Indo-Fijian man came all the way from Nadroga on his way to Natadradrave with others in a packed bus. They just stopped over for a break and had a drink,” he said.

“He  wasn’t expecting to get healed. He drank from one tap and he got healed.

“It’s the same water source from Natadradave that is found here,” said Mr Druguvale.

The news quickly spread and before long people were flocking to Delakado  to fill buckets, containers and bottles from the village taps. Buses, cars and trucks filled the village ground.

Yesterday, a Lautoka family of four had been queuing up at Natadradave, when they heard about Delakado.

They turned around and went to Delakado.

Livai Reba, 37, said they had bought his 69 year-old sister, Naomi Naisua, who was diabetic.

“That’s why we have come here and we have faith that my sister will get healed,” said Mr Reba.

At Natadradave, Malti Devi of Votualevu Nadi,  said yesterday: “We arrived here at three this morning and now (about 5pm) we just getting our bottles filled.”

Ms Devi who has an eye problem is having faith to be healed, came with her sister and the rest of the family.

The villagers said on Sunday cars queued along the road right from the Queen Victoria School junction. Delakado has eased the pressure in Natadradave.
