APIA: FRIDAY 15 FEBRUARY 2013: The wives of the two fishermen from Manono-uta who went missing during Cyclone Evans received a special donation yesterday from a Good Samaritan of sorts.

Founder and Adventurer of  Kayak4Youth Andrew Warton after reading in the Samoa Observer about their financial predicament as a result of the absence of their husbands, donated $500 to each to Fa’apea Sione and Olataga Key.

The Presentation was held at the Samoa Victim Support Group office at the old Court house. Mrs Sione and Mrs Key approached SVSG for welfare assistance for their families after the employer of both their husbands have declined to provide them with further monetary assistance.

“I feel for your situation and hopefully this money will help you in some way,” Mr Warton told the mothers.

“Some of the money will go towards items for our families.”
