Jack's Story

In a remote island of Vanuatu, little Jack was born with a large lump on his tiny face. After he was referred to Children First Foundation it was discovered the lump was not simply cosmetic but a life-threatening encephalocele. Jack was rushed to Australia for life-saving surgery in 2018. Now back at home, Jack is thriving. His mum says “Jack no longer has headaches, he is always playing and never sits down!”.

After arriving in Australia at just over 12 months old they spent several weeks living at our Retreat until they were healthy enough to undergo the complex surgery needed to separate them. After 16 days in hospital and many more months of rehabilitation and physio the 2 little girls headed home to a hero’s welcome.

Chien's Story
Born with a condition known as clubfeet, seven-year-old Chien from Vietnam had never walked. He relied on his school friends to carry him on their backs or inside he could scoot around using his arms. Unable to access appropriate treatment in Vietnam, life for little Chien was extremely challenging. Thankfully, after successful treatment in Australia, Chien recently started the 2020 school year with a bang – walking on his own feet.
