Sixteen (16) members of the Samoan Women’s Association of Growers (SWAG) and the Informal Garden’s Group (IGG) have grown themselves a garden within the Campus of Hope shelter facility, while at the same time, have the opportunity to spend time with the children survivors residing there.
The banana patch which has been set up between the House of Dreams and the Ray of Hope shelters, is the latest addition to the work of love that makes up the Campus of Hope.
Last Saturday’s activity saw a group of growers appreciating the space given to assist with the sustainability of the shelter facility while at the same time, contributed to serving the children a scrumptious lunch.
It was a community engagement for the growers and part of healing for the children survivors. To know that they are well loved, and have the support of the community, works wonders towards the healing and recovering of the children.
Thank you to all the members of the SWAG and the IGG that chipped in to make this activity an exciting one for the children.
“Fa’afetai lava Mika Maiava for coordinating such a healthy event last Saturday. The children look forward to seeing you all back at the banana patch soon.” Siliniu Lina Chang, SVSG President
