Vanuatu Cyclone Pam

When Cyclone Pam hit Vanuatu on March 13, 2015, UNICEF rapidly mobilized to meet the most urgent needs of the people affected.

As rebuilding efforts in Vanuatu continue, UNICEF is working to ensure that assistance reaches children and their families — clean drinking water, sanitation and hygiene, crucial health and nutrition interventions and education and child protection.

Despite the challenges, important progress is being made. Happily for the children, schools are scheduled to reopen, and UNICEF is providing temporary safe learning spaces and education supplies, including backpacks and Early Childhood and Recreation kits, that will benefit an estimated 30,000 children.
