To show love is impossible without understanding love from a tremendous magnitude.
Samoans are forever entrenched in family no matter who you are and where you go, according to a group of Emerging Artists (E.A.).
In launching what E.A calls Cinderella activities, 12 members of the group, recently paid a visit to the Home of the Elderly run by the Little Sisters of the Poor at Mapuifagalele.
The members offered their services, namely, nursing and medical check ups provided by four of their members who are registered nurses. Vision tests were undertaken by one of the group’s members who is an eye specialist.
Hair cuts for the men and women were also provided by the group’s graduate hairstylist with other volunteers doing arranging flowers and still others doing outdoor cleaning.
“This is the first phase of the Cinderella activity for the home and E.A. will be here every third Saturday for six months to offer our services.
We are blessed to receive training and education in each of our fields of expertise and we are more than happy to put that training to good use,” said Luana Falelua Maua, president of E.A.
The ‘Cinderella’ project was inspired by the Walt Disney classic with the same name, and with reference to the main character’s daily chores done quietly and selflessly.
Emerging Artists is a soon to be a registered association that is dominated by faafafines who met during their tertiary education at the National University of Samoa. It has today branched out to include girls and boys who are true allies of the faafafines who started the group.
