Relief Supplies for Vanuatu

The people of Vanuatu are still in great need.  Cyclone Pam left a path of destruction across the south Pacific island nation and Heart to Heart International is helping.  Our assessment team is in Vanuatu coordinating this relief effort.

As part of the relief effort, we’re sending more than 2,000 Heart to Heart Care Kits (above) – individual hygiene kits that serve as the front line of health defense.  This shipment is all packaged up and ready to depart our Operations Hub and we’re working on lining up more pallets of aid and supplies to rush to the people in Vanuatu.

These specific Care Kits were recently assembled on Valentine’s Day during a Share Your Heart event held by the Church of the Resurrection in Leawood, Kansas.  Hundreds of people turned out for this one-day build, assembling 10,000 Care Kits.

Now they’re on the way to help people in need on the other side of the world.
