Palalaua College was the recipient of a donation of furniture and books from the Latter Day Saints (L.D.S) Charity on Wednesday.

Principal, Leoloa Tuu’u Mautofiga, expressed her gratitude towards the L.D.S. Charities for answering their call. Leoloa described the L.D.S. Charities as “angels” sent by God to help the school.

The furniture could not have arrived at a better time. The school was only recently re-opened after it was demolished by fire last year.

Elder Cameron and his wife, Sister Cameron, represented L.D.S. Charities. 

 “We just feel so blessed to be able to help and do this kind of work and everyone donates. So 100 percent of those donations go for opportunities like these and so we feel very lucky,” Sister Cameron said.

Elder Cameron added that they are delighted to help anyone and everyone, regardless of whether they are church members or not.

He explained that the donations come from all over the world not just from L.D.S. Church but also from people and other churches all over the world.

“All other churches from around the world, they donate into the humanitarian fund and 100 percent of the humanitarian dollars get distributed to those who are most in need like Palalaua.”

The students welcomed the gesture. Blessing Tautalagia and Melenavet Taula were particularly interested in the books.

 “I really love reading and I’m just so excited to have these many new books in our library,” Ms. Tautalagia said.

As a token of appreciation for their generosity, the school presented Elder and Sister Cameron a small gift to encourage them to continue doing what they are doing.
