ACoM Vanuatu Disaster Team Visits Pentecost

A six-member team from the ACoM Office in Vanuatu and Diocese of Vanuatu & New Caledonia (DOVNC) are currently in Pentecost following reports received from the devastation caused by Tropical Cyclone Harold in April 2020.

Team Leader Fr. Benjamin Tosiro said: “During the visit, the team will be running training to equip Clergy, ACoM School Principals and their councils on various important topics to equip members of the Church during times of any disaster.

“COVID-19 hand washing awareness and distribution of relief supplies will also be carried out. Relief supplies include food, gardening tools, handwashing facilities for Churches, and Spiritual encouragement booklets for parishes,” Fr. Tosiro said.

“The ACoM Education officer who is part of the team will be accessing ACoM schools affected by the cyclone on the island,” he continued.

“Clergymen from four regions on Pentecost, including the Mothers’ Union Leaders, Youth Leaders, Sunday School Leaders and chairmen of the parishes will also be involved in this training.”

The team arrived in Pentecost on 24th June will be there until 8th July 2020.
