70s music, nostagia & variety night
Greetings from Medical Sailing Ministries (MSM)

As planning begins in earnest on “MSM Vanuatu Mission 2017”, we are delighted to share information with you about the first fund-raising event in support of this remote-access medical transport & development group.

Following in the footsteps of last year’s two incredibly successful 60s Music Radio Variety Nights, we now present the …

“70s music, nostagia & variety night”

Saturday 8th October, 7:00pm,
North Ringwood Uniting Church,
Dickson Cres North Ringwood.

Here’s the first promotional video for your enjoyment …

The importance of private, direct fund-raising is more urgent now than ever before, particularly in  light of recent Federal Government cut-backs to foreign aid – including assistance to Vanuatu and other South Pacific nations.So we present this event as a fun way to both re-live the music and nostalgia of the 70s (or in the case of those under age 40, discover for the first time what made the 70s so … so, “Cool” and “Right On Man”) and at the same time support this much needed outreach to some of the most remote islands and village communities.

If you can get along on Saturday 8th October, we can guarantee a great, fun night !!

As many described last years 60s nights … it will be “Truly Unique” !!

Again, thanks so much for your interest, support and encouragement .

Blessings and cheers

MSM Vanuatu Member Update – March 2016 Supplement

MSM Vanuatu Member Update – March 2016 Supplement

Greetings from MSM …

Who would have thought the opening of the Paunangisu village public toilet would make it onto the BBC News website?  Not me that’s for sure.

Read into it what you like, but if we can just secure the Queen’s official endorsement we might change the toilet’s slogan to something like “Royal Flush before Royal Ascent”  … maybe it needs a bit more work …?

Anyway, hope you enjoy the latest 2016 March Vanuatu MSM Member Update (Supplement) edition featuring the official opening of the BEST Public Toilet in The South Pacific

(For some light relief visit … www.bestpublictoilet.org  )

November 2015 Vanuatu MSM Member Update

November 2015 Vanuatu MSM Member Update

Greetings from MSM

We hope you enjoy the latest Medical Sailing Ministries Update newsletter, featuring the start of the actual building of the freshwater and toilet project in the village of Paunangisu. These are exciting times in what is otherwise a rather quiet part of rural Vanuatu.

Also attached, again primarily for those in Melbourne, is an invitation to a re-run of the widely successful 60s Music Night, that was held back at the start of October.

The first event raise around $2,200, for solar power on the toilet, with over 120 people in attendance.

Given the enthusiastic response to the night and the fact that so many people either wanted to come (but couldn’t) or would like to have brought friends (but didn’t) it was decided to run the night again.

If you can get along on Friday 13th November, we can guarantee a good, fun night !!  For those who sent donations but couldn’t make it last time, the $15 entry-donation is waived if you can get along this time.

Again, thanks so much for your interest, support and encouragement .
Blessings and cheers

October MSM Update and 60’s Music Fundraiser

October MSM Update and 60’s Music Fundraiser

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
