This is our friend Helen, the Registered Nurse who lives and works on Paeu on Vanikoro Island. She originates from the Shortland Islands and works here with her husband Frank who is the only policeman on the island. We trained Helen how to do some basic testing and left her clinic with a small range of glasses for anyone who may have missed out. We noticed that many of the old ladies were looking after young children – the grannies and often the mother was not even living on the island so the young children are sent off to live with their grandparents for a time.
