Ni-Vanuatu need Supplies and Support
Vanuatu was hit by two magnitude 4.0 tropical cyclones from March 1-3. Category four storms, Cyclone Judy followed by Cyclone Kevin produced strong winds and major flooding affecting most of the country and 250,000 people. On March 13, the National Disaster Management Office reported the restoration of power and energy, communications, transport systems and shelter were the immediate priorities. The eastern side of the country and the south have been most affected. The level of damage and people’s needs are still being assessed.
People need food, new gardens and clean water.
If you can, please donate today.
Donations will support the Vanuatu Christian Council. The Council has set up and trained local committees to respond during disasters.
VCC is planning to assist with:
- plants and tools for new gardens
- the establishment of local nurseries
- clean water
It will give priority to women and girls with disabilities, older people and widows. VCC will be working in North Efate, Emae in the Shefa Province and Aniwa in the Tafea Province.
