Groceries For Families in need

Announcement: Support our Scholarship Program

Providing groceries for families in need in Samoa


Each month we prepare and deliver packs of groceries and other necessities to families struggling throughout Samoa, with the deadly measles outbreak that struck our small island at the end of 2019, then without any break straight into the worldwide pandemic caused by COVID-19 decimating income for a lot of families in Samoa.

Many have not been able to recover fully and are struggling so hard to make ends meet. In some cases unable to provide basic needs for their families. We decided to start our groceries drive program which has been running for over a year now providing ongoing support to these families.

We have been working hard with a few partners local and overseas to help provide for children and families whose lives have been turned upside down.

Familes We’ve Helped

Through your donation we are able to help families in need and change the future for our country.

Lege Family

“We are a small family still trying to develop despite difficulties. My husband and I are unemployed; we depend greatly on our plantation for food supplies and also a source of income. He cares for his family’s plantation and then the crops we have surrounding our home which we use to sell once or twice a week and if we are lucky we earn $70.”

Sula Family

“For me and my son, we depend on our plantation for survival, because I am unemployed and so we live off our crops.”

“I want to provide a better life for my son, but I do not have the capacity or financial support to do so, which breaks my heart sometimes,”

Fa’amaoni Family

“I only have two children attending school while my eldest helps me with our chores especially with the plantation. We depend on the rain and if there is no rain we walk to families closer to the main road to fetch buckets of water. Water is a necessity for any family and we need it to survive.”

Lufia Family

“With the very little money we receive from the crops, we allocate it to weekly expenses but even though we have so little we are blessed to have something. It is true what they say, it is better to have something than nothing,”

“We really wish we had a water tank, that our family can use to store water when the supply of water is disconnected,”
