Cyclone Winston Disaster Response Work in Fiji (2016)

Sea Mercy - First Response Fleet
Sea Mercy was the first to respond with food, shelter, water and medical care to the remote islands following Cyclone Winston, the strongest cyclone on record to have hit the South Pacific. Located 30-200+ miles away, it generally takes weeks or months for the more vulnerable and at risk remote islands generally the last to receive aid following a natural disaster. Sea Mercy's First Response Fleet of 50+ volunteer yachts and SuperYachts were delivering aid within 2 days. 

About: Sea Mercy
SAILING WITH A GREATER PURPOSEThe SEA MERCY mission:  Helping the thousands of ‘at risk’ remote islands across the South Pacific return to the healthy, self-sustaining, and thriving communities they once were. We do this by providing health, education, economic development, and disaster recovery programs, where it is needed the most. We invite you to sail with Sea Mercy wherever we go. You can sail with our Floating Health Care Clinic vessel teams as they bring free medical, dental, and eye care services to the most remote and beautiful places in the world. If you prefer a little more danger, jump on board one of our First Response Fleet vessels as they sail into the aftermath of a natural disaster. If you prefer to get your hands dirty, you can follow our RISE Program teams as they help return one of the thousands of 'at risk' remote islands in the South Pacific to the healthy, self-sustaining and thriving communities they once were. We want you to be a part of everything we do and everywhere we go.WWW.SEAMERCY.ORG
