"I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” Maya Angelou
Sea Mercy has witnessed the incredible beauty of the South Pacific and also how vulnerable and at risk the South Pacific communities are to natural disasters. On March 14, a level 5 Cyclone named Pam devastated the island nation of Vanuatu leaving the 250,000+ people on their 75 islands in need of food, water, shelter and a future.
Even as the reports were still coming in, Sea Mercy once again answered the call for help by sending our Disaster Relief (DR) Fleet anchored in Fiji to assist the people in Vanuatu.
Loaded with food, shelter, tools, and medical supplies, we sent three vessels and crew, along with three doctors to the Tafea Province. We sent another 4 vessels north to assist the Shefa Province. We plan to operate our DR vessels in Vanuatu for as long as the Ministry of Health and International aid organizations need us to deliver their supplies and staff to the remote islands.
We're asking those that desire to help, to please make a donation to help us continue to purchase the food, shelter, tools, seeds and medicines needed to give them hope again. Email us with any questions.
