Taking gifts and smiles to Pediatric Ward

The children patients of the Pediatric Ward at Moto’otua Hospital got to feel the Spirit of Christmas when Digicel staff brought Santa to visit and gave out lovingly wrapped presents for each child. 

In doing so last week, Digicel continued its proud Christmas tradition where each staff donates presents to give to the children at the Moto’otua Hospital.  

Digicel Samoa C.E.O, Farid Mohammed explained that it was one way to help them enjoy their stay in the ward during the festive season.

“The joy in it for us is the thought of how you can make the Christmas spirit rise for yourself and how you can make it rise for someone else. When you feel joy that deeply and you recognize that somebody cared enough about you and showed you love, you will never forget that,” said Mr. Mohammed. 

It was a visit appreciated not only by the children and their parents but it was also a grateful experience for the doctors and nurses at the ward.

About 20 Digicel Samoa staff paraded through the hospital aisles dressed in Santa hats and happily distributed gifts to every child including their younger brothers and sisters who were also present.
