Throughout the year, the children survivors of gender based violence cared for at the Campus of Hope have been at the receiving end of in kind donations from the members of the community.
From government leaders to church, village, school and family leaders, the children have been adequately supported.
It is therefore noticeable at this time of the year, members of the Catholic faith, donating to those in need as part of its Lenten Season of Praying, Fasting and Giving.
Over the past weeks, the children residence at the Campus of Hope have received donations and fellowship opportunities from the different parts of the Catholic faith in Samoa.
There was the school get together between the Moamoa Pre-School and the School of Hope where the students from both schools gathered at the Campus of Hope for a Fun Day of fellowship. Thank you so much Sister Palepa, the sisters, teachers and the parents for coordinating this get together for the students.
Then we had a donation of a variety of bulk food and toiletry supplies from the Sinamoga & Moamoa Parish under the leadership of Father Petelo Vito. Thank you so much Father Petelo for including the Campus of Hope as part of the beneficiaries of the Parish’s Lenten commemoration.
And during the weekend, the children enjoyed pre-packed lunches delivered to the Campus courtesy of Father Mikaele Tuimavave, the Director of the Catholic Schools in Samoa.
The SVSG President thanked each and every members of the families from the Parishes and the Schools, that have contributed to these donations. “You have sacrificed a portion of your own daily needs, to give to the children of hope in recognition of our Lord and Saviour’s ultimate sacrifice for us all. Faafetai, Faafetai, Faafetai tele lava.” Siliniu Lina Chang, SVSG President
