Greetings,

Just a short note to touch base …

… with the news that whilst we haven’t taken the yacht Chimere to Vanuatu this year, we are continuing to assist with the recruitment and operation of health missions to the outer islands and the building up of the oral health program – The Vanuatu Dental Care Service.

Further news will be sent out at a later date, but the latest news is that we have an 11 person team (including local “Ni-Van” health care workers) on the remote island of Maewo.  (just landed)

Where is Maewo, (pron: My-Woe)   I hear you say?

Well check out the blog at the following link …

In addition, there’s a link to the (just returned) July mission blog to the island of Pentecost (just south of Maewo) …

Feel free to get back in touch if you’d like to know more, or you know a medical person, (eg dentist, dental assistant or therapist, doctor, optometrist, nurse etc) who’d like to volunteer for future missions – as it turns out we have further missions in late September (ie next month) and early October.

All the best and many thanks for your interest and encouragement

Cheers
