They came, they saw, and they promised to support the children’s welfare at the Campus of Hope, through a partnership.
And since the leaders of the Church of Jesus Christ of the Latter Day Saints in Samoa had made this commitment to SVSG, the different stakes throughout Upolu and Savaii have been honoring this partnership through visitation, donation and maintenance work at the Campus.
On Saturday, the Stake President Pulotu Lyndon Chu Ling led the youths from the Malie, Tuanai, Faleula and Levi Saleimoa Wards for their usual working bee at the Campus. Accompanying President Puluto were Bishop Lucky Passi, Bishop Vaitoa Lealaitafea and Bishop Saeleai.
More than 60 members from the Wards crowded the Campus. While the men did the lawn mowing, the women were sweeping and weeding while others cheered them on.
In no time, the Campus grounds was all cleaned up. The youth then played some games with the children while the leaders presented donations of bulk food and toiletry supplies as well as the much needed stable food such as taro, banana and coconut for the children.
And before the Wards left the Campus, President Pulotu presented to the youth on violence and its effect on the children ending up at the Campus.
Through engaging the youth of the Church in such community work, President Pulotu hopes that none of them will become a victim or a perpetrator of violence.
The Chair of the SVSG Board, Mrs. Georgina Lui congratulates the LDS Church for remaining true to the partnership with SVSG. “Thank you so much President Pulotu Lyndon Chu Ling and the Bishops from the Malie, Tuanai, Faleula and Levi Saleimoa Wards for coordinating such a tremendous support at the Campus of Saturday. You not only cleaned up the whole compound, but you ensured that the children have ample supplies for their daily needs in the next few weeks.”
