The Goshen Trust Mental Health Services Samoa is the recipient of a brand new 15-seater Toyota Hiace van.

The $85,000 vehicle from Toyota Asco Motors is a donation and comes courtesy of the South Korea Embassy in Apia.

Staff members of the Trust directed the 12 residents of the facility into the van and went for a drive, after the presentation and formalities at their Moamoa premises was out of the way on Monday.

The not-for-profit organisation was established in 2009 and is run by a board that meets every two months. Its main objective is to provide care and support to people who suffer from mental health issues as well as their families. 

Prime Minister Tuilaepa Dr. Sailele Malielegaoi and the former Head of State, His Highness Tui Atua Tupua Tamasese Efi are the patrons of the organisation.
