WOWS Kids Fundraiser

In the presence of the Fiji media, the emotional Sina Kami, the co-founder of WOWS Kids Fiji shared her joy at receiving $10,000 from the Pacific Theological College this afternoon, to help children suffering from cancer. PTC raised the money last Friday while hosting diplomats, parliamentarians, crop agencies, partners and friends to a Pinktober High Tea held at the PTC Fale. Mrs Kami said it’s been an especially tough year to raise funds with COVID19 and border closures. WOWS Kids helps with drugs, food for families, transportation costs, accomodation and even education. Mrs Kami said those they assist are the most impoverished. Principal Professor Upolu Vaai said PTC is committed to its vision of ‘leadership for justice’ and ‘whole of life’ approach to learning. This involves producing graduates who are not just priests or scholars but are also prophets socially engaged with issues that affect and overhelm Pacific communities, especially the poorest of the poor, such as health. He said, ‘God stands with the victims and those who suffer and thus the reason why we need leaders who are passionate about justice for the vulnerable.’ Vaai also said that ‘the college struggled financially last year and this year under the Covid19 pandemic, and any theological institution would understand the struggle, which makes this giving more special, as it comes from empty hands and faith in God.’ PTC runs an annual fundraising every year to commemorate the International Day for the Eradication of Poverty for communities in the squatter settlements in Fiji. This year it has chosen to help children suffering from cancer! We wish the children suffering from cancer life abundant and God’s care. We thank all those who donated and the organizing committee of this event.
