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.
