SAO representatives took the trip eastward today to visit the Home of the Elders at Mapuifagalele. The initiative was a response to a call on the media by the Home of the Elders seeking assistance.
According to the President of the Social Club/Fund - Mr Muaausa Marshall Maua,"this initiative was raised by the Controller and Auditor General - Mr Fuimaono Camillo Afele, in one of our Office meetings just before the SOE, so we were still working on how to give out our assistance to those in need, but then we saw the call on the media".
The monetary donation from the members of the Social fund amounted to 4,000 Tala. The Social Fund is made up of 55 members of the Audit Office. Each member of the social fund agreed to contribute to this cause.
Sisters of the Poor & Mapuifagalele expressed their gratitude and allowed us a few minutes to say hello to some of the elders.
