As we end this week’s work, we pay tribute to two of our volunteers whose commitment and heart for our work have been the difference in our support services this week.
First we have Mrs. Taase Nuu: Today, one of our 4-months old children who has been hospitalised for 5 weeks due to a number of complications, has been discharged. He is born from a 16 year old survivor of incest rape. Both children are cared for at the Campus of Hope.
The lady behind the miraculous recovery of our dear child is none other than SVSG Village Representative from Vailele, Mrs. Taase Nu’u. While the medication and on call assistance from the doctors and nurses at the Paediatric Unit at the National Hospital Motootua, were vital, it was Mrs. Nuu’s love and affection for Baby that greatly assisted with his recovery.
Her commitment and heart to support as a village representative, attest to her leaving her family, and taking her youngest daughter with her to live in at the hospital, as caregivers for our child. This is volunteering service from the Heart.
On SVSG’s counselling support for offenders of violence referred from the Family Court, we have one of our facilitators, Sister Oneia Sa’u of the Church of Jesus Christ of the Latter Day Saints staying committed to her counselling sessions with men and women offenders of violence.
Thank you Sister Sa’u for that warm smile and that mother love, that has contributed to the behaviour changes in the rehabilitated men and women offenders of violence.
