Australian Marist Solidarity thanked all who have contributed to his appeal

On 3rd April 2020, category 5 Cyclone Harold raged Vanuatu’s Island of Santo and caused very serious damage. Brothers’ community house and St Michel Technical College were severely affected. Now, thanks to many generous donations mainly from Australian Marists, via Australian Marist Solidarity (AMS), it has been able to start the rebuilding process. This is a huge achievement given the challenges presented by the cyclone, the isolated location and of course the COVID-19 pandemic.

On 23 October 2020, celebrations occurred at St Michel Technical College, Vanuatu, when the Technical Classrooms reopened. Currently, rebuilding is underway for the boys’ toilet and shower block. The Brother’s House will be built next year and it will be undertaken by the Province’s MAPS Fund, with coordination by the AMS team who have secured three funding partners for the project.

Australian Marist Solidarity community thanks in a special way the contributions that were received from Marist Brothers’ communities. Indeed, these contributions totalled nearly 50% of the total amount raised for the appeal! Furthermore, Australian Marist Solidarity is very grateful to everyone who have contributed on the reconstruction project.
