UH Cohort-35 donates refreshments to LBJ Hospital


On Good Friday, UH Cohort-35 presented a large amount of snacks and refreshments for the LBJ Hospital staff.

This is in response to the call for community help for workers that are on duty after hours, when stores are closed.

Tilofia Apelu-Moetala said, “We are members of Teacher-candidates of the University of Hawaii College of Education B.Ed. program – Cohort 35, in partnership with the American Samoa Department of Education’s Territorial Teacher Training Program. We are here to present our donations for our doctors, nurses, and our medical hospital staff who are working long hours of service, in meeting the needs of our community in this time of the pandemic. It is not much but we believe that it is greatly appreciated by LBJ Medical Center Staff.”

Acting Chief of Staff of LBJ Hospital, Dr. Akapusi Ledua accepted the donations with appreciation and thanked Cohort-35 for their community spirit.

The donations included cases of snacks, juice, water, tea bags and other refreshments.

Accompanying Moetala were Cohort-35 members, Healani Tatupu, Metanoia Faiva and Henipira Faumuina.
