On March 14, the largest cyclone to hit the South Pacific tore through Vanuatu. It caused widespread destruction, displacing 70% of the population and destroying 90% of all buildings.
The cyclone has severely impacted on the livelihoods of Vanuatu’s population, destroying root crops, fruit and leafy crops and fisheries – 80% of the population depend on agriculture and fisheries for their livelihoods. Once the initial emergency has passed, people will need help to replant their gardens and orchards, replace lost seed stocks and re-establish aquaculture production.
Union Aid Abroad APHEDA has launched an appeal to raise funds to assist with the recovery efforts in Vanuatu. Money raised will be spent on re-building housing and household water supplies as well as helping residents re-establish crops and small scale food production.
You can also call APHEDA toll free on 1800 888 674 and make a donation over the phone.
Let’s stand in solidarity and support the APHEDA Cyclone Pam Appeal.
