“God is good, all the time.”  

So is the declaration from Baby Matauaina’s parents when they were presented with a cheque and a return ticket for a life-saving mission to New Zealand for their baby.

The response to the parents call for help has been tremendous.  

Immediately after seeing Baby Matauaina’s story on S.V.S.G Facebook, the Director of the Little Angels Foundation of New Zealand, Taa Lo Tam called up S.V.S.G to pledge the Foundation covering the airfares for the mother.  

Soon after, donations specifically for Baby Matauaina from three donors in New Zealand were posted on S.V.S.G’s Give a Little page.

President Siliniu Lina Chang presented to the grateful parents of Baby Matauaina a return ticket for the mother valued at $1,343.30 from the Little Angels Foundation, and a cheque of $519.75 for NZ330.00 from Lisa Sutton, Gaylene Rowe and Fiona Shearing all of New Zealand.

Baby and her mother flew to New Zealand on Tuesday 11 April.

 “Thank you for enabling Baby Matauaina a chance to life, through her medical evacuation,” Siliniu said.
