The EU finances Vanuatu emergencies communicators
Tens of Vanuatu islets are completely isolated from the outside after the Pam supercyclone landed this week-end. This is why the European Commission is supporting immediate aid to re-establish telecommunication throughout the entire island by financing the special Télécoms Sans Frontières agent.
The re-establishment of comunication is crucial for co-ordinated and responsive human aid, especially in regions such as Vanuatu, which includes more than 80 smaller South Pacific island communities, most of which are populated. Use of personnel and facilities will allow the various stakeholders to talk and share information in the area until the regular information service is restored.
This will also provide incalculable psychologic benefits for many unannounced family members living on different isles. From the time the Pam clone landed on 13 March 2015, cellular communications have only been re-established in the main town of Port Vila and part of the Efate area.
There are no other archipelagic isles. ECHO Humanitarian Aid and Civil Protection Office of the European Commission has two emergency response specialists who are taking an active part in the government's common needs-analysis. Temporary accounts of some of the island destinations that have been achieved in recent few day's show an acute need for foods, drinking fountains, health care, sanitation sets, cooking sets and bed linen.
Télécom's Sans Frontières project forms part of the EU assistance immediately after the Vanuatu catastrophe.
