Pago Pago, AMERICAN SAMOA — Working to raise awareness about Alzheimer’s Disease, the Lealaifuaneva Peter E. Reid Foundation continues their financial support of ABLE — the Agency for Better Living Endeavors, founded by Afoa L. Su’esu’e Lutu in 2004 to provide a variety of services with the mission of improving the lives of American Samoa’s residents.

ABLE has taken the lead since 2019 with many governmental and private sector partners to raise awareness and bring the conversation to the forefront about Alzheimer’s Disease and Dementia-related diseases.

Ms Olivia Reid, president of the Reid foundation shared her words in a media release where she told ABLE board members, “On behalf of the Lealaifuaneva Peter E. Reid Foundation, I am pleased to inform you that a grant of $3000 has been awarded to your non-profit organization to aid in your efforts. Thank you for the work that your organization is doing and we’re honored to be a part of the efforts against Alzheimer’s and in support of the families of those who suffer from this disease.”

ABLE board members received the generous grant from the foundation and ABLE President Sandra Lutu said, “We are very grateful for this generous donation by the Lealaifuaneva Peter E. Reid to assist in this effort. They have been a major partner since 2019, and the support of our partners makes all these efforts possible. When our community is informed about Alzheimer’s Disease and other dementia related diseases, we then know what we need to do, the compassion that we need to extend and how we can lend support to all our caregivers and families that are living with these diseases.”

ABLE is a 501(C)3 non- profit organization whose theme this year is: MAKING MEMORIES, raising Alzheimer’s Disease Awareness in Amerika Samoa.
