Cyclone Pam Devastates Vanuatu
Project HOPE continues to work with are partners on the ground in Vanuatu to send medicines and and supplies help to the island nation recovering from a category five storm packing winds of up to 190 miles per hour. The capital, Port Vila, took a direct hit from the storm, dumping torrential rain on the archipelago nation northeast of Australia. Cyclone Pam is the strongest storm to make landfall since Typhoon Haiyan hit the Philippines in 2013.
Project HOPE's history in Vanuatu includes a volunteer mission in 2011 when seven medical volunteers traveled aboard the USS Cleveland as part of the first rotation of the Pacific Partnership 2011. The volunteers provided care, health education and humanitarian assistance aboard the USS Cleveland and ashore in Vanuatu.
