DESPERATELY NEEDING HELP: Magiagi Fereti and his wife Lafitaga Fereti.

DESPERATELY NEEDING HELP: Magiagi Fereti and his wife Lafitaga Fereti.

Magiagi Fereti is again seeking financial help so that he can return to New Zealand for medical treatment. 

Mr. Fereti and his wife, Lafitaga, approached the Samoa Observer, saying  they are desperately in need of help.

This is not the first time they’ve approached the Samoa Observer for help.

 Last year, when Mr. Fereti was told he needed to go to New Zealand for medical treatment for his right eye, a Good Samaritan was able to help them out and paid for their airfares. 

Mr. Fereti returned to Samoa in October and was asked to go back to New Zealand in March this year for his operation. 

“I really need to go to New Zealand now,” he said. “All of my papers have already been sorted out, and we are just waiting for the airfares to be paid so I can go.

“We desperately need help because I am running out of the subscribed medicine from my doctor and its way past the time my doctor asked me to go back for the operation.”

Mr. Fereti has six children and all of them are at school and the only provider of the family is his wife Lafitaga.

“Ever since I became sick, my wife has been doing several jobs and tries her best to provide for me and my children.” 

Last year, Mr. Fereti went with his sister to New Zealand and their airfares were paid by the “Good Samaritan” who offered to help them.

But this year, he is planning to get his eldest son to accompany him. 

The 53-year-old is humbly asking anyone who is willing to lend him a hand and help him pay for his airfare to New Zealand.
