Vanuatu Cyclones Emergency

In early March 2023, Tropical Cyclones Judy and Kevin left a wake of destruction across Vanuatu. More than 80 per cent of the population has been affected by the cyclones which brought floods, landslides and extreme winds. Thousands have been forced from their homes, and roads, buildings and crops have been destroyed.

Vulnerable families who have lost everything need urgent support including shelter, food, water, hygiene and health supplies.

CARE has launched an emergency response and is working together with Vanuatu’s National Disaster Management Office and our local partners to ensure essential supplies are distributed, including tarpaulins and rope so those who have lost their homes have immediate shelter, as well as clothes, towels, soap and sanitary pads so people can stay clean and safe.

Please give generously to our Global Emergency Fund so that we can immediately provide lifesaving aid and services when emergencies like this strike.

On top of the urgent needs, Country Director of CARE in Vanuatu, Bridgette Thorold says the impact on women will be long lasting: 

“For a lot of ni-Vanuatu women, their main source of income is their food garden — growing things to sell. The cyclones have completely wiped many of these out, so women’s financial security going forward is going to be a real concern … Helping women and their communities to make an income again and have enough food to eat will likely be a big focus for us in the months to come.”
