TanoaTusitala Hotel and the Reddy Group have presented $5,000 to help the Samoa Cancer Society with its work.

The money was presented by the Chairman of the Reddy Group, YP Reddy, to the Executive Officer of the Samoa Cancer Society, Shelly Burich, yesterday.

Speaking to the Sunday Samoan, Operations Manager of TanoaTusitala Hotel, Selau Solofa, said the Hotel was delighted to be able to help the Society.

She said that since 2014, Tanoa Tusitala Hotel through an initiative to fight cancer, has hosted medical doctors and specialists from Auckland New Zealand.

 “They come in to do children’s clinics in terms of screening for cancer and there is also another group of doctors coming in May,” Ms.Solofa said.

“They conduct free clinics and workshops with the Society cancer patients and their families, and also offer advice, clinical services and treatment to the Paediatric Unit at the Samoa National Hospital.”

As for the monetary donation, Solofa said it is TanoaTusitala giving back to the community.

“It also serves as the hotel’s corporate responsibility initiative as well as a personal passion of Mr. YP Reddy and his family.

“The Chairman and his family have always been passionate about such wonderful causes and that his people are just as passionate and share the family’s vision and passion.” 

“He is always happy and he is looking forward to more years of involvement with the community here in Samoa.”

“Other sister hotels in Fiji Tanoa Plaza and Tanoa Waterfront hotels have also been instrumental not only in financial assistance but other community activities to assist in Fiji.”

Ms.Burich acknowledged the support of the Tanoa Hotel as well as the Chairman and owner YP Reddy.

 “This money will be put to good use,” she assured. “May the Lord continue to bless the TanoaTusitala Hotel as well as the Reddy Group and most of all the owner and Chairman of the TanoaTusitala Hotel.”
