Young survivors get special visitors
Popular artist Lesā Lani Alo, also known as ‘Lani Alo’ and his companion Livingstone Efu, took a break from their busy schedule to visit the children of the Campus of Hope on Friday afternoon.
They wanted to spend time with the survivors of abuse and neglect and engage in singing, rapping, and fellowship activities with the survivors.
During their visit, Lesā Lani Alo and Livingstone Efu shared a special connection with the children as they sang and rapped word by word to the famous song "Alo i au faiva."
This soulful track, based on a traditional Sāmoan proverb, embodies the blessing bestowed by family and friends to uplift and strengthen individuals on their path to success and fulfilment in life.
For Lesā Lani Alo, this blessing holds a special place in his heart as it had been passed down to him by his elders who have shaped and supported him.
“It is truly a blessing for me to sing this song to the children, to inspire them to embark on their own journeys with determination," he said.
Reflecting on the experience, Lesā expressed his gratitude.
"Today was a blessing to me and the team. Everyone lives busy lives, and we tend to forget those who are less fortunate. Today was a beautiful reminder that there's more to life than what we think we're living right now," he said.
"We are grateful for the opportunity to come out and spend time with these incredible children. We look forward to returning with some friends and exploring ways to serve the Campus of Hope. If anything, we have walked away with our cups overfilled."
