Vanuatu – The Rebuild

Vanuatu is known and loved as a tourist destination full of welcoming locals and untouched surrounds. Far from being a welcome tourist, Cyclone Pam visited on March 13 2015 leaving a trail of devastation and heartache. Severe Tropical Cyclone Pam is regarded as one the worst natural disasters in the history of Vanuatu reaching category 5 cyclone intensity. Currently there are 11 confirmed fatalities and up to 46 unconfirmed reported deaths.

The people of Vanuatu are a very positive people having been voted one of the happiest and friendliest in the world. This positive attitude will go a long way in assisting them as they rebuild their nation and their lives. Many who have visited this tropical archipelago would attest to the open and welcoming nature of the Vanuatu people. They are more than happy to share their pristine paradise with tourists from around the world.

Vanuatu as a nation relies on tourism for its very survival. People flock to Vanuatu to explore the beautiful reef, the tropical rainforests, active volcanoes and enjoy the relaxing island lifestyle. The natural beauty is not the only draw card, Vanuatu provides a cultural experience, with the locals happy to share their traditions and customs with interested visitors. As such it is vital that we continue to support our island neighbour’s and let them know we will continue to visit and help restore their home. Without money coming in from tourism the local economy will suffer and the rebuild will be prolonged.

We can support one of our nearest island neighbours’ by continuing to consider Vanuatu as a holiday option and by supporting them financially in their efforts to rebuild infrastructure. The outer islands will find it particularly hard to gain support so please join with us and show Vanuatu we are with them in this!
