Print – Panu in the Sunday Herald Sun

Home > News > 2011 > April

When Panu Suga returned to his home in Papua New Guinea (PNG) he was walking straight and a little taller, with a whole new outlook on life, thanks to orthopaedic surgeon Mr John Griffiths, Cabrini Hospital and Children First Foundation.

Mr Griffiths met Panu when he visited PNG on a humanitarian visit and he knew he could help him if he could get him to Australia.  Children First stepped in to arrange his visa and travelling arrangements, and cared for him at Children First Farm in Kilmore.  The Sunday Herald Sun followed Panu’s journey.
