MSM Mission 2016

Greetings and welcome!!

Started originally as a sailing mission to assist with remote-access medical transport amongst the islands of Vanuatu, Medical Sailing Ministries (MSM) has expanded its activities over the past 8 years.

We now offers assistance with:

  • • Dental care services and oral health education, centred around training and empowering indigenous (Ni-Van) health workers
  • • Recruitment of health professional volunteers to assist with medical mission outreach and training
  • • Local village development including the building of public toilets and rainwater storage to assist with health and hygiene, along with responsible-tourist activities http://msm.org.au/latest-mission/paonangisu/
  • • Networking with a variety of disparate aid groups to achieve more effective results on the ground in Vanuatu
  • • Low-smoke stove design and construction to reduce deaths and poor health resulting from smoke inhalation caused largely from cooking fires
  • • Supply of reconditioned computers to assist with IT training
  • • Student education sponsorship
  • • Promotion of “Responsible Tourism” to support local health, infrastructure and educational programs.
