The business community continues to rally support for the work of Samoa Victim Support Group (S.V.S.G) whether it be financial, in kind or volunteer services.
During the S.V.S.G Radiothon fundraiser in June, the whole of the community pledged financially to assist in keeping S.V.S.G’s doors open to receive our people in need.
The government, the churches, the diplomatic corps., the villages, the schools and individuals. The support has been tremendous.However, the business community has gone the extra mile and pledged in kind donations to assist with the daily needs of the children at the shelter.
The ANZ Bank (Samoa) Limited coordinated the donation of $2,800 worth of food and items for the shelters from the Business Lunch Group, with an additional $1,800 worth of supplies expected (pictured right).
“Thank you Mathew Fisher and staff for your continuous support.”
Then we have Leki and Rhonda MacDonald of the MacDonald Motor Distributors donating a fridge for the House of Hope and John Bellinger of the Samoa Superior Products Limited donating a 3,600 liter water tank with fittings. Thank you also to the Apia Traders for the donation of electric kettles for the Campus.
“We have been amazed by the continuous show of support from the business community towards the work of Samoa Victim Support Group. We are humbled with thanksgiving for we have been blessed. Thank you on behalf of the children at the Campus of Hope” said Georgina Lui, Chair of the S.V.S.G Board.
