Samoa Adventist College students attended the burial of two abandoned babies on September 19.

The Year 8 students shared poems and tributes on behalf of all children for the two babies.

“They were the voices for the deceased babies. [They were] representing all children of Samoa to stop the violence and abuse of children,” Trans Pacific Union Mission associate education director Mele Vaihola said.

Student Belilu Taulapapa said: “It was a shocking experience for me, I never thought that this type of tragedy could happen here in our island of Samoa. I am grateful that God has a plan for me and my little brother and I will continue to speak for all children when there is an opportunity given.”
