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.

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.
