UPDATE: we have a helicopter, we have supplies to send, we just need some more money to make this happen. Please see details below on how to help.
Here's the latest on what we're trying to do to help in Pentecost. Details about how you can help are at the end. Please share this around. The power of social media has been amazing so far.
Zoë Marshall, 18, who made headlines as one of the Australian volunteers who was unaccounted for after the cyclone, spoke out about wanting to go back and help the school where she was working as a teacher.
"They need new water tanks. They are so focused on survival right now," she said. "At the moment, their immediate needs are water and food. Their power can wait, their school books can wait, they just need food."
Sadly, due to the food crisis, Zoë can't go back to her village.
But she still wants to help.
We're partnering with a charity already on the ground in Vanuatu to charter a helicopter full of aid and send it, with Zoë back to Pentecost.
If you can help with the cost of the helicopter charter please get in touch via email@example.com. Donations can also be sent via PayPal via firstname.lastname@example.org.
Any money left over will be donated to the Tanbok Project. They are a charity who have been working in Pentecost. They are well placed to use the money well.
