On 14 March, the largest cyclone to hit the South Pacific tore through Vanuatu. It caused widespread destruction displacing 70 percent of the population and destroying 90 percent of all buildings. Dangerous levels of global warming are at the heart of more severe storms in our region, leaving our Pacific friends increasingly vulnerable to coastal salt water flooding, destroying crops and food supplies.
Union Aid Abroad-APHEDA is raising funds to assist with the medium term recovery in Vanuatu. Funds raised will be spent on re-building of housing and household water supplies and helping households re-establish crops and small scale food production.
