"Sailing with a greater purpose" has taken on a global perspective with the addition of Sea Mercy's "Give Sight & Light" program. Whether you are sailing in the Caribbean, Central or South America, Africa, India, or the South Pacific, blue water sailors will now have the opportunity to change the lives of the people they encounter at each stop. Making local friends has never been more rewarding.

Sea Mercy’s dedicated Landing Craft was built specifically to carry a desalination unit that can not only generate 10,000 liters of pure drinking a day to difficult to access remote villages. Since June we have generated tens of thousands of liters of clean drinking water for the devastated islands in the Lomaiviti area. The Northern Lau Group now needs us.

Sea Mercy has found a way to bring hope and light to the remote island villages devastated by Cyclone Winston. Our "Light a Village" program provides a low cost and renewable Solar Lighting system for the individual homes and schools that have lost everything. Help us help them by learning more about this incredible program.

Since May, Sea Mercy has had a fleet of volunteer sailing and motor yacht vessels performing remote island assessments and delivering emergency aid (food, water, shelter and medical supplies), recovery & rebuilding aid, and medical care to the devastated remote islands impacted by Cyclone Winston. Learn how you and your organization can help make a difference in the lives of those devastated by Cyclone Winston.

300 kilometer per hour winds from Cyclone Winston has ravaged the 300+ islands and 900,000+ people living in Fiji. The outer islands in the eastern Lau Group, Vanua Levu,Taveuni and Lomiviti areas, and the western Yasawa islands sustained the most damage from Cyclone Winston. Storms are nothing new to the people living on the remote islands, a "Once in a Century" cyclone of this magnitude has never been seen by those living there.

You can't help but feel encouraged when one of the leading volunteer organizations in the South Pacific recognizes your programs by putting you on the front cover of their magazine as the lead story. Our thanks and best wishes to the 38,000 Rotarian members that serve in Australia, New Zealand and the South Pacific and look forward to working with you!
