Pacific El Niño response

Jerry can distribution brings relief in Papua New Guinea

The impact of the El Niño weather phenomenon is being felt across the Pacific with an estimated 3 million people who are facing water shortages, food insecurity and increased disease. To help families in PNG we, along with NZ Government, have run water and hygiene training and education sessions. We also distributed 3,000 20L jerry cans to reduce the time spent gathering water and purification tablets so families are drinking clean safe water. 

We are working hard to lessen the impact of El Niño – but it’s a big job– your donation will really make a difference.
