|Crew of Amelie IV: Matthew, Mark, Meghan, Marie-Claude|
Amelie IV is one of the boats in the Recovery Fleet operating in the Lomaiviti Islands. They sailed with the fleet from New Zealand and have been doing and experiencing many wonderful things here in Fiji. This family of four consists of Mark, Marie-Claude, Meghan(14) and Matthew(16). Matthew is autistic and I only mention this as it comes into play in Meghan's stories of their adventures in Avea.
These first-person accounts give valuable insight into the Fijian people and culture, current conditions and the rewards of volunteering. They highlight the impact Sea Mercy is currently making in these remote islands and serve as a reminder of how much more work there is to be done.
