Christella was a happy little 3-year-old girl in Vanuatu until one day her legs and feet were so severely burnt by boiling water she could not stand or walk. She was brought to Sydney by ROMAC to be treated for her burns at Westmead Hospital.

After skillful specialist treatment, much love and care from ROMAC volunteers and a stay at Ronald McDonald House, she walked home to her family, a happy girl once more.
