Webmedia South Pacific Donates Time and Website to WOWS Kids Fiji

There are special organisations, and then there are ‘special’ organisations… the type you just feel blessed and proud to be able to help support in any way.

With the recent launch of the WOWS Kids Fiji website, a non-profit charity foundation established in 2014 for children with cancer in Fiji, the whole team here at Webmedia SP is honoured to have participated in this noble cause.

Viola Lesi, team leader for WOWS Kids Fiji, expressed her own gratitude for our team’s generosity and sponsorship of the website. She commended the staff for being accommodating and easy to work with.  “That goes both ways, Viola… Vinaka vakalevu”

WOWS Kids continues to the good fight extending their reach and further their awareness campaign on child cancer. The website should help to further educate the general public on the work and services of WOWS Kids, and how they themselves can also help those suffering from cancer. Whether it’s a big or small contribution, every single person’s effort and/or contribution counts in this battle.  We invite you all to make WOWS Kids a beneficiary of some small gesture.

Apart from supporting children with cancer and their family on their journey, WOWS Kids intends to be more holistic in their approach especially in the areas of psychology, finance, nutrition and literacy.

Equipped with two Paediatric Oncology Units at both the Lautoka and Colonial War Memorial Hospitals, WOWS Kids to date has supported 70+ children with cancer.

While Childhood Cancer Awareness Month is generally commemorated worldwide in September, Fiji observes it in August in memory of Tae Kami who was called to rest.

The AGM will take place in June followed by the launching of Child Cancer Month in July. Awareness activities planned for August include:

  • Superhero Walk and Fun Run (held in Suva, Lautoka, Nadi and Coral Coast)
  • Shave or Save (major fundraiser event)
  • Charity Ball
  • 10th anniversary Memorial Service for Tae

WOWS Kids Fiji hopes that everyone can be inspired by Tae Kami’s message to Walk On Walk Strong no matter what we face in life… storms won’t last for long.

WMSP Rebrands Solomon Islands Tourism

July 5th, 2018 marked a turning point in the Solomon Islands’ tourism industry with the unveiling of a new brand. Hundreds were in attendance including travel agents from Australia, Japan, Taiwan, the US and many other nations along with a major contingent of local tour operators, dive companies and resort operators at the Solomon Kitano Mendana Hotel.

Webmedia South Pacific were tasked with this re-branding project and its Directors, Steve Reid and Muhammad Mohsin Akram were also in attendance along with Susan Yee, the Project Manager. It was truly a moment of great pride to see the fruit of the team’s hard work being witnessed by Solomon Islands tourism industry professionals.

The highly nationalistic and eminently flexible brand became an instant hit. It was so well received locally that it was adopted by Parliament and made mandatory on all government communiqués, recognised as the first nation to so honour its tourism brand.

The resulting ‘Solomon Is.’ brand proved to be both impactful and enormously pliable and affords the nation’s tourism brand a lasting ability to evolve and stretch well beyond a slew of national brands that attempt to utilize a singular, defining and ultimately encapsulation.

With a full implementation of the new brand, the nation has experienced its most impressive tourism growth rates ever and the industry has rallied around the nationalistic brand as a call to arms to improve national standards throughout the tourism industry.

Freda Unusi, Head of Sales & Marketing for Tourism Solomons expressed her appreciation for Webmedia,

We are very happy and impressed with our brand Solomon Is. It is so inclusive of Solomon Island people as well as its activities. It was really great having Steve sit with us in person and our superb relationship with him has enabled us to be able to be casual and yet professional, we appreciate that about Webmedia.

 The ease of working with the staff and the professionalism is what we really love about Webmedia in every aspect of our work with them. It’s so easy for us to work with the team, not only Steve but Susan too…it’s a good working relationship.”

Webmedia South Pacific Launches New Pacific Islands Forum Secretariat Website

Webmedia South Pacific’s latest project is the newly revamped Pacific Islands Forum Secretariat website.

The mobile responsive website boasts a much cleaner look and feel with an emphasis placed on being user friendly and easy to ‘get around’ navigational features including advanced search functionality. The build was challenging as it accommodates an enormous amount of fresh content and re-categorised access points.

A particular highlight is the ‘AT A GLANCE’ scoreboard on the homepage that helps to rapidly segregate and access up to twenty or more stories by ‘quick tab’ categories that include; Sustainable Development, Economic Growth, Governance and Security.
