Vanuatu Emergency Appeal
The devastating volcanic activity on Ambae, an island in the north of Vanuatu has ongoing impacts for the affected communities. In September 2017 residents were evacuated, and returned to find their crops destroyed and waterways clogged with ash. Again in May 2018 the population had to evacuate to nearby islands.
Those families who have returned to Ambae need to learn how to live with an active and unpredictable volcano. CCCV has appointed a Disaster Desk Officer who is working with them on developing disaster preparedness community projects.
Londua School has been indefinitely relocated to Bombua, a Churches of Christ school on the island of Santo.The CCCV with our support is assisting with school buildings to accommodate students and staff on a more permanent basis.
