For the third year in a row the generosity, teamwork and power of the international community (you) was been displayed in the South Pacific through Sea Mercy’s Disaster Response & Recovery work on the remote islands of Fiji (following Cyclone Winston). It also was demonstrated through our ongoing Floating Health Care Clinic programs for the ‘at risk’ remote islands of Fiji and Tonga. Although our programs continue to mature each year as we learn from the last one, it is your support of our remote island programs that has made the difference for the tens of thousands living there. Thank you.

Even as the 2016 season winds down (cyclone season) we are already preparing and planning for 2017 and would like to invite you to join us and help support these much-needed programs. Taking the initiative in the South Pacific
Although our programs are making great strides on the remote islands, the increasing number and devastation caused by cyclones has made it impossible for our island nation governments to keep up with the growing health, education, disaster and economic development needs there. If we do not become more proactive, instead of reactive, the survival of the remote island people and culture will be lost. In 2017, we launching our Sea Bridge for the South Pacific initiative to address the above four pillar remote island needs. Like the support received for this year’s disaster response efforts, we have found that “a little from many” can be more powerful than “a lot from a few” when it comes to funding such programs.Other programs making a difference
