Vanuatu is under a state of emergency after back-to-back Tropical Cyclones and a 6.5 magnitude earthquake battered the island nation between the 1st and 4th of March.

The full impact of these devastating storms is still being assessed with communications still down across much of the islands, but initial reports indicate that 80% of the country has been affected, including 125,500 children.

Communities urgently need access to power, shelter and clean water with many homes either destroyed or flooded. In the days and weeks ahead, there are likely to be food shortages as the crops many communities depend on have been destroyed.

Act for Peace’s trusted local partner, the Vanuatu Christian Council (VCC), are already on the ground assessing the situation and coordinating response plans.

For over 10 years, Act for Peace has worked in partnership with VCC, helping communities in Vanuatu prepare for disasters just like the one they are living through today. They have provided lifesaving evacuation training, established disaster response plans, and set up disaster response committees.

This long-term work will have likely saved lives over the weekend. But right now, they need our help to help meet the immediate needs of those impacted by this emergency.

Please give urgently today, and help our partner in Vanuatu to provide shelter, clean water and psycho-social support to those in need.

Thank you for once again responding with love to provide urgent relief to those who need it.
