Some will remember reading about Pilot, the deaf boy whose father had repeatedly beaten him to make him talk. When Pilot was given all the loving care available at the School for the Deaf in Marimanti, he suddenly started talking! The poor child wasn’t deaf at all, just terrified of his father! As his father has now abandoned the family, Pilot is home again with his Mum and siblings and with continued support from the teachers at his new primary school, he is making steady progress.
