    On behalf of the many families in Samoa that we were able to help during one of the darkest period, we say thank you so much for your kind monetary donations.

    Through the Givealittle page donations, we were able to personally visit 79 families who lost a loved one.

    All these families were given a monetary financial assistance on your behalf to help give their loved ones a proper burial.

    ASA Foundation on behalf of the Measles Samoa Fund Appeal would also like to thank everyone who assisted Samoa in their time of need.

    Main image

    Organising ASA Flying Volunteers to travel to Samoa, using Samoa Airways flights, staying in hotels, meals at restaurants, hiring rental cars, buying from street vendors, sending remittances to Samoa is the next phase of ASA Foundation’s work to help Samoa with the State of Recovery in association with MAKETI SAMOA The Club campaign.

    The second team of ASA Flying Volunteers is scheduled to be in Samoa from the 27th February to 1st March, tasked with delivering 3 Kidz libraries and the distribution of 2 more containers of donated aid supplies one from New Zealand and one from Australia.

    Flying Volunteers organise and pay for their own travel and accommodation while ASA Foundation looks after meals and transport during the 3 days volunteer work in Samoa.

    Flying Volunteers can travel early then join in the 3 days work, while others may want to be there for the 3 days then stay on for a few more days to visit families.

    ASA Flying Volunteers will get the opportunity to meet the families that we’ve been assisting, also frontline health staffs and volunteers in Samoa.

    If interested or will be in Samoa and wish to join the ASA Flying Volunteers, contact Tofilau Esther Tofilau on 021 029 26670 or email esthertofilau007@gmail.com

    ASA Foundation and partners have been on the ground in Samoa for 9 weeks now providing financial assistance, coffins and aid supplies to families who lost a loved one and many affected by the measles epidemic.

  • FA’ATELE TELE (THANK YOU) FOR HELPING SAMOA     16 January 2020
    Posted by: MEASLES SAMOA FUND APPEAL
    Main image

    The grateful smile on the face of this father made our day when he dropped in to the Mental Health Service with his son who had just been discharged from the hospital to pick up one of the green pack of goods donated by people to ASA Foundation to deliver to Samoa.

    This would not have been possible without the kindness of so many people across New Zealand and from Sydney Australia.

    ASA Foundation and partners have been on the ground in Samoa for 9 weeks now providing financial assistance, coffins and aid supplies to families who lost a loved one and many affected by the measles epidemic.

    ASA Foundation is grateful to companies, churches, organisations and individuals who have partnered with us to ensure there is a well coordinated operation to reach the people in need as soon as resources are available.

    Recently ASA Flying Volunteers distributed 35 pallets from 2 more containers of donated supplies for affected families in Samoa. See full list of the allocations below:

    * Mental Health Services = 7 pallets (full height)

    * Maternity & Paediatric Services = 4 pallets (full height) & 2 large consignments

    * Salvation Army = 4 pallets (full height)

    * Community Education Advocacy Centre = 3 pallets (full height)

    * Red Cross = 2 pallets (full height)

    * Caritas = 1 pallet (full height)

    * ADRA = 1 pallet (full height)

    * JAWS = 1 pallet (full height)

    * Lefaga families = 1 pallet (full height)

    * Community Groups = 3 pallets (full height)

    * ASA Flying Volunteers = 4 pallets (half height)

    For 5 weeks over November and December ordinarily people in New Zealand and Australia have been doing some extraordinary work in collecting aid supply for Samoa. Three containers of five; containing nappies, wipers, children care supply, masks, gloves and hospital supply have already been distributed in Samoa. All this supply was the work of the dedicated teams of collection partners below:

    NEW ZEALAND

    * Marlborough - Lynette Leota

    * Christchurch - Martha Tuli

    * Wellington - Henrietta Hunkin-Tagaloa, Asomua Sulu Sheck & Kaira Sheck

    * Palmerston North: Fatima Sae

    * Sydney: Cecilia Misitea (The Koha Shed)

    Note: A full height pallet is from floor to ceiling of container; equivalent to 2.5 normal square pallets.

    We are very grateful to the generosity of ordinary New Zealanders and Australians who donated nappies, wipers, masks, gloves, hygiene and other supply to help Samoa.

    Another team of ASA Flying Volunteers are scheduled to be in Samoa from the 27th February to 1st March, tasked with the distribution of 2 more containers one from New Zealand and one from Australia.

  • HELPING OTHERS TO HELP THEMSELVES      3 January 2020

    Main image

    Remember Tuivale Luamanuvae and Fa’aoso Tuivale of Laulii? The young couple who lost their three babies to measles; their two-year-old son Sale and their one-year-old twins, sister Tamara and brother Itila?

    On behalf of Tuivale and Fa’aoso pictured here the first day ASA Foundation visited them, same day they were burying their third child, we thank you all for your kind donations that supported them.

    ASA Foundation continues to be in touch with Tuivale and Fa’aoso as they rebuild their lives. But instead of waiting for more handouts, Tuivale and Fa’aoso are back working their vegetable garden and selling it at the Fugalei Market.

    These are the photos that Tuivale sent me earlier this week of their produce and the vegetable stall at the market. I’m so proud of Tuivale and Fa’aoso. Please look out for their stall at Fugalei Market when buying veges.

    Next week I’ll be joining ASA Foundation board members Tuala Tagaloa Tusani and Tofilau Esther Tofilau in Samoa and the first team of ASA Flying Volunteers as part of the MEASLES SAMOA FUND APPEAL and relief work.

    In the last 5 weeks we’ve had ordinarily people doing some extraordinary work in collecting aid supply for Samoa. Tomorrow the first container of four, containing nappies, wipers, children care supply, masks, gloves and hospital supply arrives in Samoa. All this would not have been possible without the dedicated teams of volunteer partners below:

    * Wellington - Henrietta Hunkin-Tagaloa, Asomua Sulu Sheck & Kaira Sheck

    We now have that opportunity for volunteers and donors to travel to Samoa to help in the distribution of aid supply and meet the families that we’ve been assisting. This is now scheduled for the 9th - 12th January with the ASA Foundation Flying Volunteers which is open to anyone including friends and families to travel with us.

    ASA Foundation Flying Volunteers will be tasked with the distribution of close to 50 pallets of aid supply in partnership with the National Emergency Operation Centre and local groups.

    Flying Volunteers will organise and pay for their own travel and accommodation while ASA Foundation will look after transport and food during the 4 days volunteer work in Samoa. Volunteers can travel early then join in the 4 days work, while others may want to be there for the 4 days then stay on for a few more days to visit families.

    The last 5 weeks has been a very sad time for Samoa and has prompted many to join ASA Foundation in helping Samoa, particularly in supporting those families that lost a loved one. It has been a life changing experience for many.

    ASA Foundation will remain in Samoa up to the end of February to continue offering the financial support to the remaining families, also making avail coffins that were donated by Kiwi Coffin Club.

  • 24 COFFINS HEADING TO SAMOA WITH AROHA     13 December 2019

    Main image

    A very emotional morning as we received news of another measles fatality taking the official tally to 72 while ASA Foundation was at Main Freight receiving the 24 coffins donated by Kiwi Coffin Club for Samoa.

    Thank you Ronald Wattam and the wonderful team of 20 senior men and woman of the Kiwi Coffin Club at Rotorua, the youngest 70 and oldest 90 years young, who worked around the clock since last Thursday putting together 24 coffins of all shapes and sizes and all built with love and care all to NZ standards

    As of yesterday ASA Foundation is working with Sefo’s Funeral Service and Fesili’s Funeral Service offering free coffin to any new measles cases. ASA Foundation is also contributing to the funeral service expense to ensure every child has the opportunity for a proper burial.

    Thank you Main Freight for transporting the coffins to Auckland, and all the relief supplies from across Aotearoa.

    As the measles death toll in Samoa continues to rise, so is the urgency to help these families with the burial of their loved ones.

    How can we have a normal day, especially being Samoan living overseas, when everyday we are seeing more children being buried in Samoa, some without coffins. We may feel helpless but we’re not hopeless...

    ASA Foundation’s priority with its humanitarian and relief efforts is to help parents and families that have lost a child to measles in Samoa give their loved ones a proper and dignified burial.

    ASA Foundation is grateful to companies, churches, organisations and individuals who have partnered with us to ensure there is a well coordinated operation to reach the people in need as soon as resources are available.

    As the measles death toll in Samoa continues to rise, so is the urgency to help these families with the burial of their loved ones.

    How can we have a normal day, especially being Samoan living overseas, when everyday we are seeing more children being buried in Samoa, some without coffins. We may feel helpless but we’re not hopeless...

    ASA Foundation’s priority with its humanitarian and relief efforts is to help parents and families that have lost a child to measles in Samoa give their loved ones a proper and dignified burial.

    ASA Foundation is grateful to companies, churches, organisations and individuals who have partnered with us to ensure there is a well coordinated operation to reach the people in need as soon as resources are available. Most donors that have contacted us wants assurance that their donations goes directly to the people.

    “Seeing a young mother holding the motionless body of her deceased child wrapped in a white cloth at the back of a pick up truck, seeing the strain on the father’s face trying to be strong for his little family with their young girl crying uncontrollably.... this is not a far away country.... These children are our children, these families are our families, these people are our people, Samoa is our homeland. This is why we’re doing what we’re doing,” says Teleiai Edwin Puni, ASA Foundation chairman.

    ASA Foundation, a New Zealand based not for profit organisation, has been on the ground in Samoa now for 3 weeks to find and support these families.

    Today the most urgent assistance needed by the families directly affected with the loss of a child is financial assistance to give the children a proper burial, and supporting those children still hospitalised.

    They say in the Pacific it takes a village to raise a child. But what if that innocent life is taken unexpectedly, especially when the death is preventable? How do you cope as a parent when your third child dies to the measles epidemic a few days after the other two were buried?

    We acknowledge the significant humanitarian and medical assistance offered by the Government of New Zealand to Samoa. We are also very grateful to the generosity of ordinary New Zealanders and our Samoan people who are donating nappies, wipers, masks, gloves, hygiene and other supply to assist children that are hospitalised.

    We are reaching out to you and anyone that is able to donate funds as this is the quickest way to get help to the families that have lost a child, especially the numbers keep rising. The crisis of the mind and the heart also deserves attention and support.

    Posted by: MEASLES SAMOA FUND APPEAL
    Main image

    Leapai Richard Brown of ASA Foundation as part of the MEASLES SAMOA FUND APPEAL and relief work presenting your kind donation to the family of 2 years old Manusina Siliva Tautai, daughter of Iupeli and Fa’atasiga at her gravesite at Levi Saleimoa.

    ASA Foundation is only able to help these grieving families because of ordinary people responding to our call for action. The MEASLES SAMOA FUND APPEAL goes directly to the people affected as you can see.

    If your family or know of a family that lost a child. We want to help. Please contact us.

    As the measles death toll in Samoa continues to rise, so is the urgency to help these families with the burial of their loved ones.

    How can we have a normal day, especially being Samoan living overseas, when everyday we are seeing more children being buried in Samoa, some without coffins. We may feel helpless but we’re not hopeless.

    ASA Foundation’s priority with its humanitarian and relief efforts is to help parents and families that have lost a child to measles in Samoa give their loved ones a proper and dignified burial as it’s sole priority.

    ASA Foundation is grateful to companies, churches, organisations and individuals who have partnered with us to ensure there is a well coordinated operation to reach the people in need as soon as resources are available. Most donors that have contacted us wants assurance that their donations goes directly to the people.

    “Seeing a young mother holding the motionless body of her deceased child wrapped in a white cloth at the back of a pick up truck, seeing the strain on the father’s face trying to be strong for his little family with their young girl crying uncontrollably.... this is not a far away country.... These children are our children, these families are our families, these people are our people, Samoa is our homeland. This is why we’re doing what we’re doing,” says Teleiai Edwin Puni, ASA Foundation chairman.

    ASA Foundation, a New Zealand based not for profit organisation, has been on the ground in Samoa now for 3 weeks to find and support these families.

    Today the most urgent assistance needed by the families directly affected with the loss of a child is financial assistance to give the children a proper burial, and supporting those children still hospitalised.

    They say in the Pacific it takes a village to raise a child. But what if that innocent life is taken unexpectedly, especially when the death is preventable? How do you cope as a parent when your third child dies to the measles epidemic a few days after the other two were buried?

    We acknowledge the significant humanitarian and medical assistance offered by the Government of New Zealand to Samoa. We are also very grateful to the generosity of ordinary New Zealanders and our Samoan people who are donating nappies, wipers, masks, gloves, hygiene and other supply to assist children that are hospitalised.

    We are reaching out to you and anyone that is able to donate funds as this is the quickest way to get help to the families that have lost a child, especially the numbers keep rising. The crisis of the mind and the heart also deserves attention and support.

  • THANK YOU FOR PRAYING FOR SAMOA     8 December 2019
    Posted by: MEASLES SAMOA FUND APPEAL
    Main image

    This morning Kim and Raymond of TV1 joined ASA Foundation board members Tuala Tagaloa Tusani and Tofilau Esther Tofilau at EFKS Papatoetoe Sunday service with Rev. Alosina Vavae.

    Last Wednesday about 200 Samoan church and community leaders, also government officials and business community gathered at Fale o Samoa, Māngere to pray for Samoa.

    Mr Tusani Tagaloa Tusani spokesperson of the Measles Samoa Fund Appeal and relief work said having a prayer meeting was extremely important to the Samoan community at this time.

    "We are religious people, we're believers in God and we're Christians so when a tragedy like this happens we turn to the one thing that brings strength to all of us and that is our faith in God," he said.

    ASA Foundation Trust, a Auckland based not for profit organisation is leading fundraising and private relief efforts for Samoa. Its chairperson, Teleiai Edwin Puni, said it was a tough time for the community.

    "Samoa is a small country and we know a lot of these families and some of them are a part of our families. A lot of people overseas are hurt, are mourning and are devastated," he said.

    "This [meeting] is to try and unite a community that is going through a lot of uncertainty. There is no certainty when this will stop - every day there is another one or two [children] who are dying."

    The death toll from the epidemic has risen to 65 following.

    They say in the Pacific it takes a village to raise a child. But what if that innocent life is taken unexpectedly, especially when the death is preventable? How do you cope as a parent when your third child dies to the measles epidemic a few days after the other two were buried?

    We acknowledge the significant humanitarian and medical assistance offered by the Government of New Zealand to Samoa. We are also very grateful to the generosity of ordinary New Zealanders and our Samoan people who are donating nappies, wipers, masks, gloves, hygiene and other supply to assist children that are hospitalised.

    ASA Foundation has been on the ground for three weeks now and the most urgent assistance needed by the families directly affected with the loss of a child is financial help for the parents and families to give their children a proper burial, and supporting those children still hospitalised. It is a very traumatising and distressing time for some of these families that have to bury another child a few days apart their first child was buried.

    We are reaching out to you and anyone that is able to donate funds as this is the quickest way to get help to the families that have lost a child, especially the numbers keep rising. The crisis of the mind and the heart also deserves attention and support.

    Please donate to the MEASLES SAMOA FUND APPEAL:

  • SAMOAN COMMUNITY PRAYING FOR SAMOA     5 December 2019
    Posted by: MEASLES SAMOA FUND APPEAL
    Main image

    Last night about 200 Samoan church and community leaders, also government officials and business community gathered at Fale o Samoa, Māngere to pray for Samoa.

    Mr Tusani Tagaloa Tusani spokesperson of the Measles Samoa Fund Appeal and relief work said having a prayer meeting was extremely important to the Samoan community at this time.

    "We are religious people, we're believers in God and we're Christians so when a tragedy like this happens we turn to the one thing that brings strength to all of us and that is our faith in God," he said.

    The Pray for Samoa service coincides with a mandatory measles vaccination programme with Samoa on shutdown today and tomorrow. People who haven't been vaccinated are being told to stay home to wait for mobile medical vaccination teams, and to put a red flag at their gate.

    The meeting was organised by ASA Foundation Trust, a Auckland based not for profit organisation fundraising for Samoa. Its chairperson, Teleiai Edwin Puni, said it was a tough time for the community.

    "Samoa is a small country and we know a lot of these families and some of them are a part of our families. A lot of people overseas are hurt, are mourning and are devastated," he said.

    "This [meeting] is to try and unite a community that is going through a lot of uncertainty. There is no certainty when this will stop - every day there is another one or two [children] who are dying."

    The death toll from the epidemic yesterday rose to 60 following the deaths of five people within 24 hours. Most of those who have died since the outbreak began in October have been children.

    The distressing news of the Samoa Measles death toll now at 62 and continues to rise as projected by Red Cross is hitting our Samoan community in New Zealand very hard.

    They say in the Pacific it takes a village to raise a child. But what if that innocent life is taken unexpectedly, especially when the death is preventable? How do you cope as a parent when your third child dies to the measles epidemic a few days after the other two were buried?

    We acknowledge the significant humanitarian and medical assistance offered by the Government of New Zealand to Samoa.

    The distressing news of the Samoa Measles death toll now at 62 and continues to rise as projected by Red Cross is hitting our Samoan community in New Zealand very hard. Samoa is not a big country and everyone is related one way or another. Samoans all over the world are mourning.

    They say in the Pacific it takes a village to raise a child. But what if that innocent life is taken unexpectedly, especially when the death is preventable? How do you cope as a parent when your third child dies to the measles epidemic a few days after the other two were buried?

    The Government of Samoa has confirmed a total of 3,881 measles cases since the outbreak. We acknowledge the significant humanitarian and medical assistance offered by the Government of New Zealand to Samoa. We are also very grateful to the generosity of ordinary New Zealanders and our Samoan people who are donating nappies, wipers, masks, gloves, hygiene and other supply to assist children that are hospitalised.

    ASA Foundation has been on the ground for three weeks now and the most urgent assistance needed by the families directly affected with the loss of a child is financial help for the parents and families to give their children a decent burial, and supporting those children still hospitalised. It is a very traumatising and distressing time for some of these families that have to bury another child a few days apart their first child was buried.

    We are reaching out to you and anyone that is able to donate funds as this is the quickest way to get help to the families that have lost a child, especially the numbers keep rising. The crisis of the mind and the heart also deserves attention and support.

    Tofilau on your behalf is visiting families that have lost children to the measles epidemic and present your donations and tell them that they are not alone.

    To those that have donated, volunteers and everyone that is helping out with the relief supply collections, we thank you so much.

    This week another Samoan elderly group in Auckland, Mafutaga Samoa Otara, presented ASA Foundation with an envelope they collected from their benefits and pension to help with the Samoa measles relief efforts.

    This is what giving from the heart is all about... it’s not the amount that matters. But where doing nothing is not an option.

    Soon the first supply of diapers / nappies, wipers, masks, plastic gloves, towels, soaps and hygiene supply from the collection in Auckland heads to Samoa. Thank you EIF and our support partners...

    To date, 42 measles related deaths have been recorded.

    Here is how you can be part of the relief efforts:

    1. Please donate to the Givealittle page MEASLES SAMOA FUND APPEAL:

    https://givealittle.co.nz/cause/please-donate-to-measles-samoa-fund-appeal

    2. Contact Tuala Tagaloa Tusani on (+6421) 0223-8663 or email tagaloatusani@gmail.com if you wish to be involved in the collection of hygiene supply for Samoa. We have collection points in Auckland and Sydney with other overseas cities to be confirmed soon.

    3. By sharing our updates to people that care of what’s happening in Samoa. If you want to help and for more information contact Teleiai Edwin Puni on (+6421) 618-042 or email: edwin@puni.co.nz

    While help from New Zealand, Australia and Tahiti with vaccinations have arrived, what is not accounted for is the trauma and social impact that the measles situation is having and will continue to have on families, and those on the frontline.

    The crisis of the mind and heart also deserves attention and support.

    The MEASLES SAMOA FUND APPEAL is to support parents like Tuivale Puelua and Fa’aoso Matavale of Laulii who have lost three children to measles, two-year-old son and their one-year-old twins, sister Tamara and brother Sale. This is so heart breaking.

    The MEASLES SAMOA FUND APPEAL is free giving from the heart to the people directly affected with the loss of a child due to the measles outbreak in Samoa. It is administered by a NZ senior health professional and ASA Foundation.

    Christmas this year will be a sad one for these families... we want to reach out to them with your help.
