Heroes: Carnival Corp Brings Hope To Devastated Vanuatu
When category 5 cyclone Pam hit the Vanuatu islands, flattening them, their isolated location in the South Pacific, made rescue and recovery a huge challenge, with only a few industrialized, nearby nations able to offer massive assistance quickly.
As days went by, without contact with many of archipelago’s 82 islands which comprise Vanuatu, a massive relief effort was actually underway. Staging of relief supplies in Brisbane and Sydney, Australia had begun with the first wave of relief supplies, 30 tons of emergency being assembled for humanitarian aid.
