The Rotary club of Mackay collected desks, chairs and school supplies that were no longer required by the Queensland Education System and sent them to the remote islands in Vanuatu.
Unloading a container at Santo East School on Santo Island. The equipment was distributed all over the island by the local schools.
Without a water supply the schools shut down. The students require a certain amount of drinking water each day. However the schools can not afford water tanks or the catchment system required to fill the tanks
In the end the reason we do these projects is to give our fellow humans a hand up not a hand out. At the end of a long day it is great to just have a chat with the kids
Yet another container from the Rotary Club of Mackay suppling, hospital equipment and school equipment around the island of Efate
