Vanuatu appeal

We are fundraising to help with the recovery and rebuild in Vanuatu.

Come and find us at 35 High street to see how you can help! 

Vanuatu is an archipelago made up of 86 islands, 65 of them inhabited
Around 80 per cent of the agriculture is subsistence farming and all the crops have been destroyed. Even if people manage to get hold of seedlings for banana plants, mangos and manioc - the most popular crops - it's going to be at least 3-6 months before they can be harvested. As if that wasn't bad enough, the storm surge during the cyclone meant that much of the soil has been destroyed by salt water.

This is our Pacific neighbour. A three-hour flight from Auckland, visited by many Kiwi tourists seeking a Pacific Island experience. It truly has been decimated.  - Text from Vanuatu Support Must Go On.
