SVSG Measles Prevention & Helping Hand Outreach
Please help us reach out to our families who have lost loved ones to the measles epidemic.Nationwide
In response to the escalating measles crisis that is crippling our country to a state of mourning, Samoa Victim Support Group (SVSG), in its role as a support service provider, is taking a proactive approach to prevent and to lend a helping hand.
Referred to as the ‘SVSG Measles Prevention & Helping Hand Outreach’, the aim of the Outreach is to prevent as much as possible the spread of the measles, especially to our underprivileged families.
This is through awareness raising in each families on the importance of household hygiene, how to care for the affected children, counseling for the traumatized children and their parents, and the provision of basic necessities.
We run two shelters for young women and children. Plus a nursery for new born babies who are the result of abuse and neglect in Samoa.
These are run on goodwill. We support the women as their cases go through the court system; we advocate for change in wider Samoan society and government; and we support those at risk of becoming victims.
Use of funds
Awareness raising in each families on the importance of household hygiene, how to care for the affected children, grief & trauma counseling for the remaining siblings and their parents, and the provision of basic necessities.
In 12 more hours, we will celebrate the receiving of the greatest gift of all, the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
It will also mark the end of the Measles Fundraising by SVSG for its Measles Outreach for our families who have lost children to the measles.
As a Family, we have stood together through these hard times. And as a Family, let us rally together once more and give generously for the surviving parents and siblings of our precious children called to rest way too soon.
Happy holidays everyone. God bless!
