Vanuatu devastated by cyclone, WPC encouraged to contribute
Over the years, a number of WPC members have visited Vanuatu, including David Walter, former member, who spent time there as a mission-teacher. The area was recently devastated by a category 5 cyclone, the aftermath of which can be seen at the link below. Reportedly, at least 11 were killed during the "monster" storm and up to 90% of the buildings in the capital were either destroyed or damaged. Aid agencies are describing the event as catastrophic and are concerned with imminent food shortages - perhaps the most challenging the area has ever faced.
Westminster Presbyterian Church members are encouraged to make contributions written to WPC-Vanuatu. They will be passed on to the Presbyterian Disaster Agency.
