As our country comes to term with the stabbing horror of a couple last Friday, Samoa Victim Support Group is appealing to our people that help is just a phone call away. This is through SVSG’s Helpline number 800-7874 which is free and is a 24-hour service.
Regardless of the circumstances surrounding family violence cases, it is SVSG’s experience that the effect of anger not only on the perpetrator, the survivor but also on the innocent children, always end up in horror.
As a support service provider, SVSG’s network of supporters is always within reach. We have the SVSG village representatives in villages throughout Samoa and the church leaders whom we have been working with, to provide immediate support. We are therefore calling on our village representatives and our church leaders to be vigilant of families in domestic situations and lend a helping hand wherever possible.
To the husbands and fathers in our families, you do not have to carry the burden on your own, SVSG’s counselors are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Help is therefore just a phone call away through the 800-7874 free Help Line number. “As President of SVSG, please, all that we ask of you is to call us, when in need of help. It is the only way we will be able to assist you and to save that extra life.”Siliniu Lina Chang.
We pray for a speedy recovery for the couple involved, and a safer journey for all our families as we set sail this year
President of SVSG Samoa
