More than 30 kids were treated to great rides and food during the WOWS Kids Christmas party at the Holi­day Inn Suva yesterday.

Despite the challenges that the children face with their termi­nal condition, the Christmas buzz made the them filled with excite­ment.

The kids were treated to a heli­copter ride from Suva to Nausori as part of their Christmas party activities followed by a food treat that was provided by the Holiday Inn Suva.

WOWS Kids ambassador Kimber­ly Smart said the children deserved to be given such a party because of the nature of their medical condi­tions.

“It is very important to host these kids…days away from Christmas because some of these kids may not be here next year or even may lose battling cancer,” she said.

“WOWS Kids this year with its stakeholders put this together with a view that these kids deserve more than what they have.

“It is very important to have kids get early detection so that the dis­ease is cured at an early age and it can help the kid survive.”

Ms Smart thanked stakeholders for their kindness and love in to do­nate presents and food for them.

The kids also received a Lenovo tablet each as part of their present loaded with games to help them cope with the long wait in hospitals.
