Release of 'Through The Eye Of The Storm'

 Dr Limbie Kelegai's much-acclaimed autobiography Through the Eye of the Storm ( has been released and is now available from the Christian Books Melanesia at Garden City, Boroko, Port Moresby.

This powerful book by Dr Kelegai tells of how he overcame being a quadriplegic to achieve his dreams.

Dr Kelegai, from Ialibu, Southern Highlands province, sustained a spinal injury in 1980 in a rugby league accident in Lae and became a quadriplegic while studying at the University of Technology.

On the night of Sept 22, 2005, Dr Kelegai received his PhD in information technology from the vice chancellor of the Queensland University of Technology in Brisbane, Australia.

His two sons were on either side proudly groomed in their traditional Ialibuan attire.

The rest of his family was very close in the rows soaking the accolade with pride and joy - it was a momentous evening.

This was the pinnacle in Dr Kelegai’s career.

This is the story of how this young man lived through trauma with hope to achieve his dreams: never giving up regardless of the enormity of the trauma.

It is a love story of how he met his wife Rose, a nurse at the Angau Memorial Hospital in Lae, and how she stuck with him through good and bad times,

In these times, this book reminds us of the values we have lost: self-worth, self-belief, courage in the face of adversity and the power of hope.

It is a celebration of our heritage and our people and is a much-needed source of inspiration to instil hope in the hearts of many throughout this country
