IN a bid to create more awareness on early signs of childhood cancers, Walk on Walk Strong (WOWS) Kids Fiji will soon visit health centres to promote their work.

WOW's team leader Viola Lesi said they had noticed that health centres in Suva-Tailevu corridor did not have posters and banners advising people of the early signs of cancers in children.

"We will go to health centres in Suva and Tailevu putting up posters and banners so that people, when they visit the centres, can read and be aware of the signs of childhood cancers for early detection," Ms Lesi said.

"We want to start this activity by the end of next month. We are also planning to go to Nataisiri as well and visit the health centres there."

Ms Lesi said the objective of this activity would help people understand and know the signs and symptoms of cancers affecting children in the country.

"Why we decided to go to health centres from this year is because for some people accessibility is a problem.

"Some of them don't have access to media, so when they visit the centres, they will be able to read what's on the poster and banners," she said.
