As you all probably know, Cyclone Pam recently caused a severe amount of destruction in Vanuatu and Tuvalu and has been edging towards the East coast of New Zealand in the last couple of days. Tamae Saito is co-ordinating a donation from SWY International to our SWY family in the islands. If you would like to make a donation to help in recovery, you can make a donation to the SWYNZ Alumni bank account and the Alumni will forward on a single payment.
The Alumni bank account is:
The Ship for World Youth New Zealand Inc
Please include your family name, your SWY batch number and the reference HELP to ensure that it gets to the right place.
We would like to make a transfer to Tamae no later than the 8th April so if you do make a donation please do so before that date. If you would like to keep up to date with what is happening, please check out the ‘SWY Family’ Facebook page
Our love and well wishes go out to all of the families who have been affected by this disaster, particularly our Pacific cousins. Mā te atua koutou e manaaki, e tiaki…
Arohanui, SWYNZ Alumni Association
