In light of all that is happening around the world with COVID-19, we would first like to let you know that we are praying for you and your families. The world is becoming a very dark place right now as we see the youth turn against the elderly, the wealthy turn against the poor, and the strong turn against the weak. It is becoming a fight for survival in many countries for even the most basic necessities and often the most vulnerable groups of people are being forgotten. We want to let you know, that despite what is happening around the world, Samoa Victim Support Group continues to remain focused on the vulnerable, and we are still available, ready to receive the vulnerable with open arms.
Due to the seriousness of the COVID-19, we have made the proactive decision to close The Campus of Hope as of Thursday 19th March to all volunteers and visitors until further notice. This decision is very hard for us to make as the children love the volunteers, however, we are first and foremost a Child Protection Agency and must put the protection of the children at the forefront of our work. Samoa has now had its first suspected case of Corona Virus, and we are therefore doing our very best to be proactive.
“Please pray for the children at The Campus of Hope as they are continuously in need of help and assistance. As children under the protection of SVSG they are already vulnerable. They have already felt left behind. However, they don’t have to feel left behind in a time such as this. Please, if you are able to provide any form of assistance during the Corona Virus Pandemic that would ensure the children are well looked after, that would be most appreciated.”
“May God bless you all.” Siliniu Lina Chang, SVSG President
