I LOVE SAMOA Measles Benefit Concert

25 January 2020 - 0 Comments

Seiulialii Dr George Leao Tuitama "For those personally affected, by loss of a family member, or watching their loved one in the hospital, this epidemic has pushed many people's coping mechanisms to the breaking point," he said Two more people died from measles in Samoa over the New Year period. The ministry said 30 new cases of measles were reported during the same period. Patients with measles are currently admitted to Samoa's main hospital, including critically ill children. Samoa's Ministry of Health Mental Health unit has warned of the growing psychological impact of the measles epidemic and is urging people to seek help. Seiulialii said the team was providing both emotional and spiritual support.

The Samoan and New Zealand community are known for their generous hearts to give. Ten years ago Samoa was hit with the Tsunami tragedy that claimed hundreds of lives, and the community responded. And now ten years later we are faced with another tragedy, in our home of Samoa. This time we have a measles epidemic that is taking our babies and affecting many families, which is hitting much closer to home for us.

We know our community is hurting, and we, the Music Community, who once again have heard the call and have responded with beautiful generous hearts, are donating their talents and services to collectively raise funds to support the families that have lost loved ones to the measles epidemic.

Alofa mo Samoa, spearheaded by Sir Michael Jones, who set up a give a little page now have a system to ensure that the funds that are raised through their give a little page will be directed to all families that have lost a loved one. We will follow Sir Michael Jones lead, to distribute the funds to the families affected. Together with this awesome team of professional music industry people and artists, we look forward to collectively bringing to you a great show, and more importantly provide a platform for everyone to donate in raising funds for the families affected.
