ORCV & Yachties 4 Vanuatu-Cyclone Pam Relief

ORCV & Yachties 4 Vanuatu-Cyclone Pam Relief

Ocean Racing Club of Victoria Inc

Our thoughts are with our friends in Vanuatu recovering from the devastation left by severe cyclone Pam that ravaged the tiny Pacific island nation on 13 March 2015. We have forged a strong connection with our Pacific Neighbour since we conducted our first 1,885 nautical mile international ocean yacht race from Melbourne to Vanuatu in 2006. During preparation for that first race, it became clear that we could do something more than just bring our much needed tourist dollar to the people of Vanuatu. So for each of the Melbourne to Vanuatu races (2006, 2010 & 2014), we have dispatched a shipping container with humanitarian aid, from generators, computers, clothing, sporting equipment, toys, reading books, pens/pencils, stationery, to school books. Yachts distributed the aid to villages during their cruising, after the races and made many friends and developed relationships with the local communities. They need our help now more than ever. http://orcv.org.au/index.php/vanuatu-humanitarian-aid

Supporting National Close the Gap Day

To achieve Indigenous health equality by 2030 we need genuine long-term partnerships between our various levels of government and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples. To ensure this, all Australians should be reminding governments of this responsibility and their previous commitments to Close the Gap.

Involvement with National Close the Gap Day, or taking the 30 for 2030 Challenge, are ways you can help ensure this happens.

Having made two trips to Vanuatu and visited a number of the remote islands, I know the people will help themselves and they will get back on their feet but they need money to replace the buildings and equipment they will have lost. Never mind the yachts 1 Year ago
