Our Long-Term Impact
Together with our donors, Tearfund’s partner has been building the disaster resilience of communities for several years. Donations to Vanuatu in the past, have protected lives and helped communities respond effectively during these recent cyclones.
+ Over 100 people used our partner’s evacuation centre and staff were offered pastoral support and food as people sorted out their houses.
+ During Covid-19, Tearfund’s partner installed satellite internet to improve connectivity. This allowed us to connect with our partner straight after the first cyclone and it was used to spread information to communities about the next cyclone. As a result, people who had already started cleaning up and removing their shutters, returned to their safe shelters.
+ Tearfund’s partner also sourced a generator to help maintain the internet while the power was down.
It is because of our donors, that we have implemented these measures, and together, Tearfund will continue to equip our partner and the communities of Vanuatu to respond to future disasters.
