DART has been deployed to Vanuatu

Update 6 - ‪#‎Vanuatu‬ deployment


The team have now finished their tasking at the Villa Central School. They've done a great job in making the school grounds and areas around the school safe, so that it can now fully open.


Under the direction of the Australian aid coordination authority they are now moving to ‪#‎Nguna‬ and Pele islands (smaller islands to the north of ‪#‎Shefa‬) to focus on vital road clearance. The island ferry service is now up and running, but movement and aid delivery around the island is being hindered by fallen trees blocking the main routes. Australian aid are providing funding for fuel and assisting our guys with transport to get there. They're not expecting to have access to anything other than emergency communications while working on the islands, so will probably go quiet for a while.


We've received some 'professional' photographs of the guys working at Villa Central from a NZ military photographer Chris Weissenborn, which we'll get in the Facebook pictures folder idc. Chris has kindly given the charity permission to use his work to publicize the good work the #Vanuatu team are doing out there.
