Sardar says her 2 months-old daughter, Jaweria Saif was screened by the Sai Sanjeevani staff in Labasa and was then diagnosed with congenital heart disease.
She says it was difficult for the family to accept the fact and did not want to delay her surgery and came to Suva as soon as they received a call from the hospital.
She further says that her daughter has received a new life and they will always remain grateful for the support and assistance that the hospital and have provided them with.

Pepesabatu says it was tough for them to know about the disease and still unable to do anything as did not have enough funds for an overseas surgery trip.
He says beginning of the year a doctor from Solomon Islands arranged for Moses surgery at the hospital.
