Sea Mercy who are well known in the Pacific for their great charity work in remote islands specialising in medical, dental and eye care and heading to Vanuatu as part of the international humanitarian relief for these stricken islands. There will be three yachts leaving from Fiji to take supplies to the more remote islands and provide assistance to the rebuild.
“As I know you are well aware, Cyclone Pam has done massive devastation to Vanuatu, Tuvalu and Kiribati. Reports coming in from our Ministry of Health and International Aid contacts say it is one of the worst disasters to every hit an island nation in the South Pacific. Last year, two of Sea Mercy’s Disaster Response vessels spent 4 months in Tonga following Cyclone Ian, bringing with us over $170k in medical supplies donated from Fiji (we were the only aid organization able to deliver emergency aid to the remote islands). This year we are being asked by the government of Vanuatu and the NDMO in charge to assist them in getting the incoming international aid delivered to the remote islands (something we specialize in).”
The team are asking for either in-kind donations (blankets, food, shelter, supplies, etc.) or online financial donations
Port Denarau Marina will be collecting supplies in our storage cages in the boat yard. If you have any items to donate please drop off to our security gate anytime. Your assistance will be greatly appreciated.
