The interest from families and friends to visit and fellowship with the children at the Campus of Hope attest to God’s beautiful love as it is being shared amongst His people.
Despite being no blood relation or connection, families continue to request via email, phone calls or walk-ins at the Office, to visit the children. In most cases, the families will bear gifts and donations. To SVSG, the most important aspect of these family visits is the heart behind the gesture; the heart to reach out and embrace an abuse child, a neglected child or a troubled one, even if they are not related.
The same was true for the Fiu family from Auckland New Zealand. Word of mouth enabled the connection through friends of the family who visited the Campus earlier this year. Thank you Tanita Naidoo and Mairena Yacoub for advocating for support for SVSG with your families and friends.
The young family has been looking forward to the visit since they planned it. According to Ben Fiu, his wife Ana who initiated the visit as part of their trip to Samoa, was more excited. However, this all changed when they entered the Campus and saw the children, then he knew that the visit was part of God’s appointment for their family, at this point in their lives.
Ben and Ana spoke of their hearts for the children and the love God has for them all. The Fiu family promised the children that this would not be the last time they would visit and be in contact with the Campus of Hope.
Thank you Ben, Ana and Josiah for the heart-warming visit. Thank you also for the donation of $300 that will assist with the daily caring of the children.
President of SVSG Samoa
