Bank spreads Christmas cheer to survivors of abuse

What a joy, and what a blessed feeling to be a part of a community that takes its responsibility at heart, when sharing the Christmas spirit with the abused, the abandoned, the disabled and the most vulnerable children…

It is surely the season to be jolly. This was the case when the General Manager of the Bank of the South Pacific, Taituuga Maryanne Lameko-Vaai, treated children at the Samoa Victim Support Group for Christmas last week.

She acknowledged the work by Group in caring for the abused children, by putting up a complete Christmas tree with presents, for the children at the Campus of Hope.

As part of their corporate responsibility, the Bank donates annually for a charity during the festive season. 

For this year, it was the first time the Bank had brought the Christmas spirit of giving to the Campus, and it was special.

A wish list from the children was sent to the Bank.

On the day, the smile, the joy and the eagerness on their faces, said it all.  Even the babies at the Nursery Shelter were included in the Christmas treat by the B.S.P.

To complete the special treat, Santa was none other than the reigning Miss Samoa, Pricilla Olano, who greeted each child and presented them with their presents.  

What a joy, and what a blessed feeling to be a part of a community that takes its responsibility at heart, when sharing the Christmas spirit with the abused, the abandoned, the disabled and the most vulnerable children.

Representing S.V.S.G at this joyous occasion was the Chairperson for the Board, Georgina Lui, who thanked Taituuga, the management and the staff of the Bank of the South Pacific for sharing the spirit of Christmas with the children at the Campus of Hope.
