Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama believes in the future of Fijian children who deserve our love and care.

Mr Bainimarama, while opening the WOWS Kids Fiji Resource Centre in Suva, commended the good work the organisation did in caring for children living with cancer and other life-threatening illnesses.

The Prime Minister also praised the efforts of the WOWS Kids Fiji foundation to get their resource centre up and running.

WOWS Kids Fiji was set up to complement the treatment children received from the pediatric oncology services in our hospitals.

“It helps care for our children as they face their extraordinary battle through reading material, wheelchairs, items of daily need like toiletries, and access to counselling and home visits by medical staff,” Mr Bainimarama said.

“The foundation is doing everything it can to help these wonderful young people enjoy their precious moments of living.”

This resource centre gives WOWS Kids Fiji a proper base for a range of activities to support everyone catering for these children’s needs.

“There is only one message I have for you all today. In my New Year’s address, I again called on every Fijian to care for each other, to love one another, to extend a helping hand to those among us who need it most.

“No one else in Fiji needs that helping hand more than the children who will benefit from this centre, the PM said.

“So I urge you all to love them, to care for them, to do everything humanly possible to make their days more satisfying and enjoyable. And to work collectively to do whatever we can to give them the best possible chance to beat their illnesses.

“I commend the work being done by the WOWS Kids Foundation and urge it, and other organisations like it to always practice good governance and conduct its affairs with transparency and accountability.

“We must give our children the best we can afford. And we can only do our jobs properly if we all conduct ourselves with the highest standards of propriety.”

Similar services for children in the Western and Northern Divisions are expected to roll out.
