Greetings from MSM

We hope you enjoy the latest Medical Sailing Ministries Vanuatu Member Update newsletter, containing news (and photos) of the shipping container’s much-anticipated arrival in the village of Paunangisu.

 

The planned public toilet construction will mostly be done by locals in the village, but a work-party will head over to Vanuatu on 18 October, with an intensive timetable hopefully seeing the project completed in 1 month.   Maybe we’re just dream’n, but that’s the plan !!

 

In other news, despite the onset of a severe drought throughout much of Vanuatu, the vegetable seeds sent over soon after Cyclone Pam struck, have started to grow, with harvesting of a range of crops now well underway.

 

For those in Melbourne this week-end and looking for a fun gig on Saturday night (3/10) don’t forget the 60s Music Night, in support of solar power for the Vanuatu toilet’s lights and pump.

A flyer for the 60s Music Night has been attached and is also mentioned in the Member Update.  The night will involve a live DJ playing songs from the 60s, that will actually be performed by a live band on site and in attendance.  Smashing Baby !!  It’s a cafe-style, dress-up, nostalgia event that will also feature 60s adverts, TV shows and news video clips that’ll leave you wanting to watch Forrest Gump again.

Thanks again for your interest, support and encouragement and should you have any questions or comments, or wish to make a donation, please feel free to get back in touch.
Blessings and cheers
