    Melanesian Cyclone

    Part of our link province of Melanesia has been hit by a natural disaster.
    In early May, Vanuatu and the Banks and Torres Islands were seriously
    affected by a devastating storm—Cyclone Donna.
    Many homes and other buildings have been damaged and destroyed, there is a lack of safe drinking water, and planting areas have been washed away. Food supplies are expected to run out in June.
    The Melanesian Mission UK (MMUK) has launched an appeal to raise money for the Anglican Church of Melanesia to provide emergency supplies. The Diocese of Chester are sending a contribution.
    If you would like to make your own contribution, MMUK has set up a
    giving page for donations.
