The people of Vanuatu have been devastated by the recent Cyclone Pam and it is estimated in the capital Vila that up to 90% of the building have been damaged but what is more disturbing is that the whole Island village of Tanna has been flattened. We have been working with a team of people to assist with getting food and water to them but what is going to be their biggest need will be building materials.
HOW YOU CAN HELP
Over the next 12 weeks we will be collecting building material from businesses and community members and then sending these materials via a shipping container to Vila to be distributed to the people in Tanna.
