Supplies for Baby Lupe from a Good Samaritan based overseas.

An overseas based Good Samaritan has promised to supply for baby Lupe’s powered milk every month.

The plight of baby Lupe was highlighted in the Samoa Observer’s Village Voice section during the Festive Season.

The help from an anonymous donor was confirmed by Junior Fidow, a representative at Samoa Market.

Mr. Fidow said the Good Samaritan had placed two orders on their online orders website for baby Lupe after her story was published and shared online.

The Good Samaritan, who wishes to remain anonymous, wanted to convey to Lupe’s family that they can also expect a bit of shopping every month, especially the baby’s milk powder that she needs for her condition. 

In addition the generous donor will supply Lupe’s powder every month until she no longer needs it.

According to Samoa market’s representative “there are so many acts of kindness that go unnoticed and I thought that for us here at Samoa Market, to witness one, was very special and I wanted to share this with you.”

He said they advised the family of baby Lupe about the stuff and they’ve picked them up.

“I think for future orders, we will need to look at delivering this to them to save them from coming.”

Baby Lupe was featured in the Village Voice section of the Samoa Observer last week Friday. 

Her mother, Neetia Faaeteete, told of her struggle with her two-year-old daughter, Lupe Faaeteete, who was born prematurely.

Last week Saturday another Good Samaritan lended a hand by giving Baby Lupe some bottles of water and also five 900 grams of Golden Farley Powered Infant Milk.

The family is still receiving help from not only locals, but also people residing overseas.

As of yesterday the Samoa Market team again received another order from a different person who also wishes to stay anonymous.
