"How Cool Is This ....." via Facebook Julie Kelly says "Thank You Sea Mercy"

How cool is this…. I am getting a drink of clean drinking water on the shore of Navakawau Village using a solar powered desalination unit. This is a village that lost 70% of all houses due to Cyclone Winston and they do not have a water source. Thank you SeaMercy for responding to our pleas and donating these units. Everyone is enjoying the sweet water.

Thanks to Sea Mercy and Nakia Resort for facilitating 2 desalination units for Navakawau Village for temporary relief. We are all working towards a borehole which will ensure regular water for the village of over 600. Julie Kelly thanks a million! Ian and Wendy Shields with Sea Mercy have been fantastic! 

And Cedric Holtz I think you will be surprised who I have been with, friends of yours from Samoa! Clark James we are really appreciative you and Octavia Hunter came and experienced our communities. Clark, the donation you made to Sea Mercy directly contributed to 1 of 2 desalination units at Navakawau Village. You have made a world of difference to the health and well being of our people.
