Dear PPSEAWA Sisters,

Our beloved International President , Dr Viopapa Annandale, has asked me on her behalf to extend her condolences to those affected by the latest disasters. Vio and her family are also mourning close family members killed in the recent tsunami in Samoa.

Words cannot describe our thoughts at this time with the devastation in Indonesia, the Philippines, Tonga, Samoa and American Samoa.

We are grieving with you, our PPSEAWA sisters, as you mourn, as you cry and as you contemplate the loss of loved family members, friends and communities.

Your sorrow is our sorrow and as your sisters we reach out to hold your hands sharing in your sadness. We want to hold you, to embrace you, to listen to you, to care for you and comfort you.

You are in our thoughts and prayers.

With love,

Mary Cabrera.
First Vice President
PPSEAWA International Council
