Saving animals in the wake of Cyclone Pam
Thanks to your support, our disaster team is helping thousands of sick and injured animals suffering in the wake of Cyclone Pam in Vanuatu.
Thank you so much to all of you that donated to our emergency Cyclone Pam appeal. Because of your support, our vets are on the ground in Vanuatu. They are giving life-saving help to animals whose lives have been shattered by the storm, following its devastating impact on 14 March.
Animals including dogs, cats, goats and pigs are in urgent need of vet care, medicines and food and many have been left without shelter, their homes torn apart by the cyclone.
Our skilled vets have been treating every animal they’ve come across. They began in Vanuatu’s capital, Port Vila, and are now on Epi Island, one of the Shepherd Islands. Epi Island has a high animal population and is listed among the sites most in need by the Vanuatu Government after the cyclone.
With food for people and animals running critically short, arranging getting supplies delivered to the islands is a big priority.
Thanks to you, we have been able to secure plans to provide food for up to 30,000 animals over the coming months – with a focus on pigs and poultry. It has become clear to our disaster team that they are the animals most at risk.
Our aim is to secure animal food and medicine for the coming months to ensure that we save as many animals as possible. Alongside food deliveries, we will be providing support to the government veterinarians who will provide long-term treatment for animals impacted by the cyclone.
