Vanuatu Cyclone Pam Emergency Appeal

The Anglican Board of Mission has launched an Emergency Appeal following Cyclone Pam which hit Vanuatu on March 14, cutting communications and leaving communities across the islands with no infrastructure.

A State of Emergency has been being declared following the cyclone which left eight people confirmed dead when it hit the 65 islands with a total population of 267,000. The death toll is expected to rise significantly once communication is re-established with areas outside Port Villa, the capital city.
