Eleven years on and it’s a great feel­ing to know that we will still “Walk On Walk Strong”, says Sina Kami.

The mother of Tae Kami whose bat­tle with cancer spear­headed

the in­cep­tion of WOWS foun­da­tion, is op­ti­mistic that funds raised last night from the WOWs Kids An­nual Char­ity Ball, will sus­tain the tremen­dous work that the foun­da­tion con­tin­ues to do. “We ex­pect to raise a sub­stan­tial amount, that will go to­wards help­ing fam­i­lies of chil­dren that con­tinue to bat­tle cancer,” Ms Kami said.

She said the tar­get was to get enough peo­ple from the busi­ness houses and or­gan­i­sa­tions to do­nate cheer­fully to the foun­da­tion’s work.

“We want to reach as many peo­ple and let peo­ple know of our story,” she said.

In or­der to con­tinue to sup­port chil­dren liv­ing with cancer and their fam­i­lies, WOWS Kids Fiji had been able to meet its tar­get an­nual bud­get of around $350,000 through events such as “Shave or Save” cam­paign, the Walk and Fun Run, and through many other di­rect con­tri­bu­tions.

A char­ity ball was hosted at the Grand Pa­cific Ho­tel in Suva last night.
