The Association of Banks in Fiji has donated $20,000 to the Walk on Walk Strong Kids Fiji Foundation to support 81 children who are currently battling with cancer.

WOWS KIDS Fiji Founder Sina Kami says the big donation given towards their WOWS KIDS support fund will go a long way as it has been tough for the organisation in the past 2 years.

Kami says the love and support keeps flowing in from the public like the one today.

She says they currently have 81 children under their support on transport, medicine, food packs plus other medical needs.

Association of Banks in Fiji Chairman Rakesh Ram says as we celebrate Christmas, there are many unfortunate children who are not able to enjoy the festivities with their families and friends and it is very important that they help them in whichever means they can.

Ram says they want them to enjoy the festivities just as we do, and this is a small way of expressing that they care about them.

He says they hope that their effort will leave an everlasting impression on these individuals and will make their Christmas the most cheerful and joyful.
