The Vaitele based ‘Cross Fit Fatu Toa ’ fitness group carried out a soup run yesterday at the TTM and Leulumoega hospitals, as part of an organised effort for those who need support, from the measles epidemic.’
An organised group, ‘The Helping Hand’, is behind the goodwill service that has been involved mainly with serving the two main hospitals with food.
“We learned that Leulumoega hospital do not have a kitchen which means patients supply their own food,” the group said in a statement posted on the online site ‘ Facebook.’
“The Helping Hand’ has food teams catering for the Leulumoega and TTM Hospitals with contributing groups like the ‘Cross Fit Fatu’ giving them support with their soup run.
“We have been feeding the outpatient unit too where so many sick babies lie on mattresses on the floor with their mommies or daddies as they await a bed in any of the makeshift wards.
“These soup runs are enough to feed patients id they are bale to eat, their care givers, doctors, nurses, security, police officers etc….we see tired, hungry and overworked faces everytime we go.”
The Good Samaritan group is grateful to all their donors, volunteers and everyone helping out in their assembly line.
