WOWS Kids’ mission is to support children with cancer.
WOWS Kids’ message “For the Storm won’t last too long, WALK ON, WALK STRONG”
WOWS Kids’ goal: To inspire the people of Fiji with the positive message of “Walk On, Walk Strong” so as to live positive lives and help people achieve their dreams and find the strength to overcome any difficulties along the way.
WOWS Kids’ have set-up & supported a Resource Centre for children with cancer and other life-threatening conditions in Fiji.
Fifteen children under the age of twelve lost their battle to cancer last year. According to ‘WOWS Kids Fiji,’ the youngest victim was a three-year-old girl and the oldest was an eleven-year-old boy. ‘WOWS Kids Fiji’ Team Leader Viola Lesi said that early detection can help protect a child from cancer. “The faster we get them to the hospital, the faster they can be treated because cancer can be cured. But early detection is the key and it is not only for child cancer. Early detection is the best bet here in Fiji,” she said. “With the money that we collect, we support approximately 70 children every year and that costs us F$ 210,000 excluding our administration costs. Most times, we bear the administration cost, our board members volunteer whatever they can, and that is how difficult it gets to us to support these children,” she said.
Save the Children Fiji receives numerous requests for Educational materials for children particularly in November – February each year and this includes school bags, stationary, exercise books, uniforms and school shoes. These requests are usually from low income earners particularly in the Central and Northern division.
In the last month, in partnership with the Ministry of Education, we provided school bag kits to 100 children whom the Ministry of Education had identified to have dropped out of the Education System, these children now have another opportunity at school.
Save the Children Fiji does not have a pool of funds dedicated for this and therefore this fundraising initiative will contribute to educational materials for poor and disadvantaged children, this includes victims of fire.
Therefore from the money raised through various fundraising campaign proceeds will go into Save the Children Fiji’s Educational Assistance Pool Fund.
Vijay Krishna, Save the Children Fiji’s Communications & Marketing Manager said “It’s a great moment for us for being chosen as one of the official Charity Partner for the Island Chill Suva Marathon 2018 and we are grateful to the Suva Marathon Club.”
