It is not every day that you get an opportunity to transform someone’s life.

Dennis and Gill Warner from Auckland were fortunate to encounter such an opportunity when they visited Ayau on the TRUE NORTH.

Here they met Ruben Dimara. Ruben had a big personality and, a cleft palate. The Warners decided that they’d like to help out.

They asked TRUE NORTH guide Mark Erdmann to arrange a surgical procedure for Ruben.

The operation was a complete success and everyone at True North Adventure Cruises is thrilled to have been associated with this heart-warming story!

A big thank you to Dennis and Gill!

(Everyone at True North Adventure Cruises was sorry to hear that Gill has since passed and, we send our deepest condolences to Dennis and family.)
