We've done it before - Can you help us to do it again please?

This time last year Sea Mercy received an urgent appeal for food from our friends in Northern Lau.

With your help we raised our target of US$ 4000 in a weekend. The island communities of Avea, Cikobia and Susui  received their supplies the following week. This year, more severe Covid restrictions are not only once again preventing them selling their fish but also anything else that they produce. Consequently they have no cash to buy food staples, which are already in short supply in Vanua Balavu.

As with Cyclone Winston in 2016, Sea Mercy's fleet of volunteer vessels, crews and disaster response leadership team in Fiji are standing by to assist the NDMO with emergency aid and medical team deliveries to the devastated remote island communities. Since 2012, Sea Mercy has played a critical role in the meeting the needs on these remote islands and often were the first to respond and arrive with aid on these 'at risk' remote islands.

With Category 5 Cyclone Harold completing its destructive pass through the South Pacific, Sea Mercy is once again mobilizing our emergency aid and volunteers to assist our island nation partners and their 'at risk' remote islands.

Imagine the logistical savings in precious fuel and disaster aid space if the first delivery by a disaster response transport vessel was two lightweight containers per family. Containers that would provide each family with emergency shelter, eliminate their ongoing drinking water needs and allow all future transport efforts to focus on delivering valuable supplies to rebuild their homes and communities (instead of thousands of plastic water bottles).

Register today to reserve your 2021 Rotation in the South Pacific! With our Floating Health Care Clinic (FHCC) vessels operating from May through October, we have 8 different rotation dates for our volunteers to chose from across the South Pacific. With medical, dental and ophthalmology care now being offered, there are incredible opportunities for all health care related volunteers to serve on each rotation.

Sea Mercy’s Amatasi Project links community groups in Australia (and around the world) with remote communities in Fiji and other Pacific island nations through the construction and donation of an ecologically and economically sustainable fishing vessels. To empower local communities to be self-sufficient in a sustainable manner and to support, educate and train local populations in the lost art of transport using the wind.
