Australian aid saves lives: http://www.savethechildren.org.au/aid4change Many villages on Vanuatu’s outer islands are isolated and do not have access to basic services like healthcare. Although under-five child deaths have decreased over the past 10 years in Vanuatu, more children still die in rural areas compared with urban areas. Save the Children works with the Australian Government, the Ministry of Health in Vanuatu and communities to set up aid posts in villages that do not have access to health care. We also train and support the ongoing skills development of community volunteers known as Village Health Workers.
Dr. Raul Schneider is with World Vision in Vanuatu, and is working with survivors of Cyclone Pam. He's a medical doctor and public health professional, and serves as World Vision's health advisor in Vanuatu.
Projects funded by Australian Aid in Vanuatu are helping communities to access clean water, improving childhood education and health and giving people the opportunity to improve their income. World Vision Vanuatu have put together this video to say thank you to Australians for their support and generosity. Learn more about World Vision's work in Vanuatu: http://wva.me/vanuatu_thanks
Watch this remarkable story of how more than 100 women aged 25-80 in Vanuatu have increased their physical activity through an Island Cricket Program run by the Vanuatu Cricket Association. The program funded by AusAID through the Pacific Sports Partnership Program has seen the majority of participants lose weight and lower their blood pressure and blood sugar levels. Other Program partners include World Health Organisation, Vanuatu Ministry of Health, Department of Women's Affairs, Wan Smol Bag, Save the Children, UN Women and Youth Challenge Vanuatu.
Australia is helping Vanuatu to train its health workers, building their skills in areas such as nursing, as well as helping to build its health systems through providing much needed surgical services and equipment. Also, with Australia's support, Australian nurses are able to share their skills, experience and education with their Vanuatu counterparts.
"There is no more food in the gardens. The sun is burning everything," says 9-year-old John from Vanuatu. In March 2015, Vanuatu was hit by Cyclone Pam which destroyed many houses, buildings and ruined crops. Yet to have the chance to recover, it is now experiencing extreme dry weather due to El Nino. UNICEF is working in the region to provide health and nutritional support. _________________________________________ Subscribe to UNICEF here: http://bit.ly/1ltTE3m The official UNICEF YouTube channel is your primary destination for the latest news updates from the frontline, documentaries, celebrity appeals, and more about our work to realize the rights of every child.

Hi I'm Amelia Armistead and you're watching the lifestyle channel on Vanuatu TV. Here in Vanuatu, the traditional cultures are so very important, and they're still very much alive among the Melanesian people. Custom and tradition have been thriving for centuries and ensure respect within communities. One of these such customs is the drinking of Kava. Kava isn't a food, but plays a significant part in Vanuatu cultural society. Kava is a derivative of the Pepper Tree family, and the drinking of Kava takes place in a Nakamal. There are different types of Kava all throughout the South Pacific. But the Kava from Vanuatu is prized above all others. Traditionally the Nakamal used to be strictly for the men only. But now, on most of the islands, women can go along as well. This is all pa...

At the request of the Vanuatu Government, Australia has sent a small team of Explosive Ordnance Disposal specialists from No. 65 Airbase Recovery Squadron and medical support staff from 2 Expeditionary Health Squadron, to the Republic of Vanuatu to dispose of unexploded ordnance in coordination with the Vanuatu Police Force as part of Operation Render Safe. The Australian Defence Force (ADF) team flew on a Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) C-130J Hercules aircraft from 37 Squadron from RAAF Base Richmond to the island of Espiritu Santo. Operation Render Safe is the ADF’s enduring commitment to the removal of explosive remnants of war which continue to pose a potential danger to communities across the South West Pacific.

Communities of South Malekula Island in Vanuatu depend upon the health and vitality of their coral reef ecosystems. These threatened habitats provide coastal protection, as well as food and water security. The Vanua'tai Resource Monitors Network, with the assistance of Island Reach, is expanding in the region to assist community-managed conservation. Sustainable livelihoods are a key part of effective natural resource management. Women in the communities are earning income harvesting tamanu nuts which are sold overseas. This activity brings important income to the women to support their children's education and the well-being of their families.
In the Pacific Islands, and particularly in Melanesia, access to modern energy services is limited. Several Pacific Island countries are trying to bridge the gap of access by tapping into renewable energy sources such as solar, wind, biomass, geothermal and hydro. There is growing concern that this shift to exploitation of their indigenous energy sources will result in significant impacts on biodiversity as well as on the livelihoods of people. Using low carbon, clean and efficient power sources remains a challenge for many island communities primarily due to geographical isolation and high start-up costs. A component of IUCN's energy programme in Oceania looks at upgrading existing solar power systems and installing new ones in schools and health clinics on the islands of Santo...

Bungee jumping officially began in 1979, but men on Pentecost Island in the South Pacific have practiced nagol, or land diving, for centuries. In a ritual full of symbolism and spirituality, men dive from a wooden tower up to 100 feet high with nothing but vines attached to their ankles. On a recent voyage aboard the National Geographic Orion, the ship's expedition team helped a jumper attach a wearable camera to his chest, capturing a thrilling view of this ancient tradition. ➡ Subscribe: http://bit.ly/NatGeoSubscribe About National Geographic: National Geographic is the world's premium destination for science, exploration, and adventure.
