The Fiji Cancer Society finally released funds to the Walk On Walk Strong (WOWS) Kids Fiji foundation, which had been frozen in their account for the past two years.
The funds were raised by WOWS and were being held in the Fiji Cancer Society bank account to assist children living with cancer.
However, the account was frozen following major differences between officials from both sides.
An emotional WOWS Founder, Sina Kami, says it had been a long time coming but was thankful to finally see things come full circle for them.
“So I thank you the public, thank you the people of Fiji for believing in the vision and mission of Walk on Walk Strong. We would not be able to be here today if Fiji Cancer Society didn’t believe that, but we’ve been working together. There were a lot of heart aches, and listening to the song and the message, that the storm won’t last too long, walk on walk strong. We made it.”
A total of $519,343.00 was handed over to the foundation during a small ceremony held at their headquarters on Rewa Street.
WOWS is currently supporting close to 50 children around the country who have some form of cancer or a life-threatening diseases.
