Dear all,

In response to the devastating cyclone which has hit many pacific countries including Vanuatu and the Solomon Islands, the Melanesian Mission has today launched a fundraising campaign. We have not been able to make contact with the Anglican Church in Vanuatu yet, but once we do, we want to be able to support those affected as soon as we can.

You can support the people of Vanuatu in the following ways:

Please pray and ask your churches to pray


Almighty God,

in whom we live and move and have our being,

cradle in your loving arms the peoples of Vanuatu and their neighbours affected by Cyclone Pam:

comfort the bereaved,

strengthen the distressed and uphold those reaching out across oceans in support at this time of distress;

through Jesus Christ our Lord.


Make a donation in one of the following ways.

Send a cheque made payable to The Melanesian Mission and post to 21 The Burlands, Feniton, Honiton, EX14 3UN. Please write on the back of the cheque Vanuatu Cyclone Appeal.

Make an online transfer with the reference Vanuatu Cyclone.
