Project Varyame

Project Varyame

 Varyame Before At the age of only 6 months, Varayame underwent surgery in Fiji to drain a boil on his back.  The infection was never fully drained.Over the next two weeks, his feet turned in and became deformed.  Later, he developed weeping sores over his limbs and was left unable to walk.  He spent a year in hospital with little done for him.

16 years later, with the infection still raw, ROMAC brought Varayame to New Zealand (April 2011), to have his infection cured and is giving him a chance to walk for the first time in his life.

 Varyame After

Fast forward to December 2011Varayame returns to Fiji, infection cured and walking unaided (having had both feet amputated and prosthetic feet fitted).
