Secondary school pupils in Suva are supporting the Walk On Walk Strong (WOWS) nationwide appeal to raise funds which is underway in Fiji, for children living with cancer.
Wows was begun by Sina Kami, whose 15 year old daughter, Tae, died of cancer in 2008, to raise the funds needed to fulfil her daughter’s dream of a centre for children with long term illness.
On Thursday the prefects from Marist Brothers’ High School in Suva visited the Children’s Ward at the Colonial War Memorial Hospital.
Head boy Jone Veisamasama said after visiting the Walk On Walk Strong (WOWS) committee earlier this year, they felt they needed to fulfil their role by visiting the children with cancer at the hospital.
Jone said they were also inspired by the late Tae Kami story, a child with great faith despite the sufferings she endured, she knew the storm would not last too long.
Students at of St Joseph’s Secondary School also took part in WOWS’ activities on Thursday.
After a performance by Vanessa Quai, the students were moved to tears when the Sina Kami told them Tae’s story.
