Cyclone Pam and now El Nino have brought a humanitarian and environmental crisis to Vanuatu. In this new brief video, Island Reach brings the personal stories of the people of Buninga Island who are now experiencing a severe shortage of water. Produced for Live & Learn Vanuatu (LLV) as a follow-up to our collaboration in 2014 in which Island Reach transported and helped install rainwater catchments for Buninga Islanders, this video was produced along with a written report which considers lessons learned and ways forward.
This month, Island Reach, working with LLV, helped support a delivery of 18,000 liters of water to Buninga by local NGO Wita Aid which is providing relief throughout the Shepherds Group aboard a barge equipped with a water desalinator.
