Church steps in to help families of street vendors

A church in the Apia Town area has stepped in to help families of street vendor children by providing them with food after they lost their source of income. 

The donations come at a time when street vendors are not allowed to sell their products as part of the COVID19 State of Emergency lockdown.

The ban has taken a massive toll on these families. Which is why the Church has stepped up to provide help for ten families living on the outskirts of Apia.

The leader of the church asked that they remain anonymous because they only wanted to help the families without drawing any attention to them.

The Samoa Observer understands that this is the second time this church has gone out to help these families.

They provided them with basic foodstuffs like rice, pisupo, eleni, sugar, flour, bread, biscuits, noodles and other daily necessities such as soap, laundry powder and toilet rolls. 

The donations in kind and cash was given by church members.

The same church will be going out again to these families with more supplies this weekend as the Lord provides from its members.

The root of the reaching out by this church is simply through helping the needy as in the Word of God. Not wanting to have their name publicised is in accordance with the Word of God also.
