Suva Stand Up Paddlers (SUPers) gave more than $19,000 to Walk On Walk Strong (WOWS) Kids Fiji on Thursday.

This handover was part of the launching of their stand up paddling fundraiser for WOWS Kids which began last month.

In receiving the gift, an emotional WOWS Kids Fiji co-founder Sina Kami shared how the support meant so much to the organisation.

“I know it has been a tough time for everyone, financially,” she said.

“For you all to take time out and away from your families to help support really means a lot to us because it’s not just our WOWS Kids family, they are our children.”

Present at the event was general secretary for the Pacific Conference of Churches the Rev James Bhagwan. He said they were hoping to hit $20,000 by the end of the week.

“As we have heard there are many ways in which we can support,” he said.

“Even if you don’t have money, your time, presence and other methods of support are very important and we encourage people to do so.”
