Cyclone Pam hit Port Vila, Vanuatu, in the evening of March the 13th. More than 2,000 people are in evacuation centres, no power, no water. About 90% of the infrastructure on Efate has been damaged severely and crops have been demolished.




Girls and women are disproportionately affected by natural disasters like Cyclone Pam, which is why it is critical their differing needs are actively considered in the response, recovery and reconstruction efforts.

UN Women National Committee in Australia has launched and appeal for help. Your contribution can support UN Women in Vanuatu to protect the women and girls affected by this disaster, and invest in reconstruction that will benefit women and their families.
