Tropical Cyclone Harold (Vanuatu) Emergency Appeal

Vanuatu – Cyclone Harold Emergency Appeal:

This Appeal has been launched to support response and recovery efforts following Tropical Cyclone Harold (Category 5) which devastated large areas of Vanuatu, Solomon Islands, Fiji and Tonga last week leading to loss of life and significant damage to houses, crops and infrastructure.

Our Appeal will contribute to a broader emergency response being implemented by the Anglican Church of Melanesia, the Vanuatu Council of Churches and ADRA (Adventist Development Relief Agency) with the focus on Santo and Pentecost, both islands that suffered significant damage.
