Makogai Island Needs Your Help!

<via Facebook>

As you may know we the Outsider's, Wendy and Ian, have been working as volunteers with Sea Mercy delivering food, supplies, shelter, tools and clothing, etc and also installing desalinators to some of the worst affected islands in Fiji after TC Winston. The island we have visited the most is Makogai, which lies about 35 klm NE of Levuka, which is the old capitol of Fiji.
We have developed strong ties and have become great friends with the people of the village of Na'sau on the southern end of the island.
Makogai took a direct hit from Cat 5 TC Winston with catastrophic results over 90% of the village and school are totally destroyed. Most of the villagers are currently still living in tents.
We are now looking for volunteers to travel to Makogai to help rebuild the school and perhaps the village and church if we can get enough help. We are looking for teams of 4 or more people with at least one person be a licensed or trade qualified builder/carpenter/plumber with the other team members having building experience and a cook. Team members will need to fund their own airfares to Fiji, bring their own tools and be able to be on site for at least 2 weeks. Sea Mercy will provide transfers from Nadi to Makogai, tents, bedding, cooking facilities and food whilst on island. They will also be providing all the building materials, generators and fuel, scaffold etc. 
The 3rd week of June it is anticipated that we will require our first team/team's to start. The program will continue until at least November. 
If you wish to become part of this exciting and worthwhile project please contact Wendy and Ian on or phone +6798646926. Or Tracey Collins at Sea Mercy
