Seven medical volunteers traveled aboard the USS Cleveland to Tonga in the Spring of 2011 as part of the first rotation of the Pacific Partnership 2011 (PP 11). PP 11 is Project HOPE’s 22nd mission in the past six years in partnership with the U.S Navy and Department of Defense. This first rotation of volunteers is providing care, health education and humanitarian assistance aboard the USS Cleveland and ashore in Tonga and Vanuatu. Two additional rotations of volunteers will join the five-month mission later in the spring and summer to bring care and education to other Oceania nations including Micronesia, Papua New Guinea and Timor Leste.
