“I just feel sorry for Rishav because COVID-19 is very dangerous for us gang too. It’s better to stay home and look after my son properly.”

WOWS Kids Fiji Co-founder, Sina Kami says they are also providing necessary support for kids living with cancer.

“Medicine that is not available at our main hospital, we do provide that from the private pharmacies and any type of blood-tests needed to be done outside of the main hospital, we do provide that.”
