Taking ownership of ending violence against women and girls in Samoa as a collective, is an indication of a responsible community. The coming on board of the Samoa Statioinery & Books to coordinate monthly donations to the Samoa Victim Support Group and the Campus of Hope over the years, is a Company that walks the talk to support the ending violence against women, girls and children.
Today, representatives from the SSAB presented in kind and monetary donations to SVSG as the Company’s monthly contribution towards ending violence in Samoa.
There were boxes of clothes and linen collected from the Company’s Donation Boxes placed in front of the SSAB Megastore. In addition, there was a cheque of $1,000 which according to the SSAB representative, comprised of $500 from the sales of Orange Seis in support of SVSG, plus a $500 top up by the Company itself.
The donations by SSAB have been collected from members of the community. Those with the hearts to support the ending violence against women and girls in Samoa. Those who believe in this great cause.
As a support service organization and an advocate for ending violence in Samoa, these community efforts should be acknowledged. They should not be discounted as minimal compared to the continued rise in the incidences of violence we see around us today. Because every life impacted by the goodness of humanity is valuable and worth celebrating.
It is in this connetion that the Chair of the SVSG Board, Madame Georgina Lui, congratulates Tofilau Fiti Leung Wai, management and staff of the SSAB for performing this act of kindness above and beyond every month they walk through our doors.
“Through your faith Tofilau Fiti, you have positively influenced the community to join the fight to end violence against women and children in Samoa.” Georgina Lui.
