A state of the art security system for the residents at the Campus of Hope shelter facility, will be officially launched on Friday, 30 July 2021 at Tuanaimato.
The project is a work of love, kindly sponsored by Bluebird Lumber and Hardware at the total equipment cost of ST32,527.00. The security camera system was installed free of charge by Cyrus and Rosie of Comptech at a cost of ST13,440.00 bringing the total cost of the project to be launched and handed over to Samoa Victim Support Group, to ST45,967.00.
There are 26 security cameras installed throughout the Campus, all connected to a CCTV system. The project definitely sets a new dawn for the Campus with regards to its security.
It came at a time when just recently, two additional houses were opened to cater for the increased demand for refuge, for the children and women survivors of violence and sexual abuse.
With close to 100 children and women survivors being accommodated at the Campus facility at any one time, their safety will be monitored effectively through the newly installed security system.
The Managing Director of the Bluebird Lumber and Hardware, Afioga Tuiaopo Faamausili Andrew Ah Liki has been at the forefront of this project from the start. The General Manager and Board Member of BBL, Ms. Faina Ah Liki will speak on behalf of the BBL Board of Directors when she hands over the security system to the SVSG Board.
“As the Chair of the SVSG Board, I acknowledge with sincerity Afioga Tuiaopo Faamausili Andrew Ah Liki and family, for including the residents of the Campus of Hope as the beneficiaries of your ongoing work of love for the most vulnerable members of our community. Thank you also to Cyrus and Rosie for your valuable contribution to the work of love project. Together, we are making a difference, one life at a time..” Georgina Lui, Chair of the SVSG Board
