God, Help this Child


Why , Oh Lord to one so young?


The plight of Josaia Temo was first posted on LF on August 5 2008. The he could see and his face was visible. Read here

Today Josaia is blind.

Only his mouth is uncovered . His entire head is bandaged and he is on morphine for pain control.

Yet, Temo managed to celebrate his birthday in the Nanuku Settlement in Vatuwaqa.

Life can be cruel.

For Temo it has been unmitigated pain.

No amount of appreciation can be enough for the people who have cared for Temo ever since his aprents abondoned him. God Bless you kind souls.

If you wish to help, you can make at donation to Save the Children Fund, the cancer society and Project Heaven. These three NGOs jointly care for Temo.
Donations in cash or kind can still be made to these NGOs or to the following bank accounts: Fiji Cancer Society, Westpac Account No. 980002682 or ANZ Account No. 5047761. Deposit slips should be made out to Josaia Temo.

Watch, O Lord, with those who wake, or watch, or weep tonight, and give your angels charge over those who sleep.
Tend your sick ones, O Lord.
Rest your weary ones.
Bless your dying ones.
Soothe your suffering ones.
Pity your afflicted ones.
Shield your joyous ones.
And for all your love's sake.
