Little company makes big difference for Samoa

Little company makes big difference for Samoa

New Zealand owned travel company Mondo has shown that even a small organisation can make a big difference in people’s lives.

Through its 14 retail stores nationwide, the company has collected 36 pallets of food, bedding, clothing and medical supplies to send to the Islands.

“New Zealanders are still working tirelessly to help the people of Samoa and we’re just thrilled that we’ve been able to help to get the goods to the Islands we hold so close to our heart.

“We’ve had an overwhelming response from the various communities and with the support of Retko Specialist Transportation, Habitat for Humanity, Hudson Recruitment and the Samoa Consulate General we have now got a huge pile ready and waiting to go.”

The goods were picked up from Mondo’s 14 branches by specialist transportation company Retko who have given more than $30,000 worth of transportation.

With the help of Habitat for Humanity and the Samoa Disaster Relief Council the goods will be freighted and distributed to communities in need in Samoa.

Scoop Review Of Books: Who Killed Jane?

This is an important book. Why? Because any publication that soberly and sensibly attempts to cast light on an unsolved murder is important, for the very real reasons that not only do the bereaved require and deserve a sense of closure, but that the murderer or murderers may be closer to being confirmed, arrested, tried.
