Company supports Campus of Hope
The Samoa Victim Support Group’s Campus of Hope was the recipient of a brand new washing machine donated by local company Island Rock yesterday.
Island Rock representative, Reverend Sealii Faigaa, said the donation was part of Island Rock’s 25 days of the Spirit of Christmas Campaign.
“The campaign is focused on the spirit of giving to those in need, like vulnerable families that were featured in the Samoa Observer section known as the Village Voice.
“But it has also included organisations like Samoa Victim Support Group and Home of the elderly at Mapuifagalele.
“The main reason why we are here is because your president Siliniu Lina Chang came to us for assistance and therefore we have heeded her call.
“Hence the reason why we have come to present this gift to assist in caring for the children staying here at the campus of hope,” Rev. Sealii said.
Rev. Sealii added that Christmas is all about the spirit of giving and love, it is also a time to share with others the meaning behind Christmas.
Deacon Toetu Alosio, who spoke on behalf of the president of SVSG, expressed their sincere gratitude at the donation by the company.
“We thank Island Rock, management and staff for their generous contribution, who are we, these children that you have spared a thought for.
“We pray that with your generosity, may the Lord continue to shower his blessings upon each and every one of you especially your company.
“We do not have anything to repay the gifts but we truly believe that your blessings are with the Lord,” Deacon Toetu said.
The Campus of Hope caters for children who are victims of abuse and come under the umbrella of the Samoa Victim Support Group. The campaign by Island Rock ends on December 24 and features a variety of programmes and activities.
