Dear Supporters,

A vicious cyclone hit the Southern Pacific island of Vanuatu yesterday and widespread devastation is expected to be much worse than originally reported. The government has declared a state of emergency.

4 Adventist Churches have been destroyed, but no adventists were injured in the tragedy so far (read here).

Cyclone Pam is one of the most powerful storms to hit Vanuatu. We need your financial support and prayers today.

ADRA was prepositioned in Vanuatu and are now taking part in assessments. Our team has met with families whose homes survived two previous cyclones, but are homeless now. Many roads are unpassable and even an evacuation center suffered enough damage that families had to find another place to take refuge.

Ten staff members from ADRA Vanuatu are unaccounted for as communication channels are down. Please keep them and the entire nation in your prayers.

ADRA needs you right now. Please make a donation to our emergency relief efforts today. So far, six deaths have been confirmed and, unfortunately, the numbers are feared to rise.

ADRA supporters always come through for us in times of disaster. I am asking you to do the same for Vanuatu today. Please give generously and keep the people of this beautiful country in your prayers.

Gratefully yours,

Jonathan Duffy

ADRA President
