The tourism income these communities have relied on to survive has stopped due to Covid 19. Aneityum in Vanuatu has had little to no government assistance as the country struggles with closed borders and the halt of Tourism. Cruise Ships made up 98% of the islands tourism income and enabled the local Aneityumese community to send their children to Primary school, Secondary school, College or University.
These communities value this education as a vital part for the communities future however without this income these communities were left to do their best on their own and as a result, many families struggle to afford the basics.
Enter our lottery to win a 10 night, all expenses paid including return flights for up to 6 people from Australia to Mystery Island/Aneityum Island, Vanuatu. Staying the 1st night at Nasama Beach Resort, Pt. Vila and then 7 glorious nights staying at Island Breeze Bungalows, Anelcauhut Village, Aneityum Island.

With no date for how long until the next Cruise ships will return it is a worrying time for these people.
We have seen first-hand the desperation that they are currently experiencing and have a good insight on what needs to be done.
We are working to raise awareness and funds to help support Aneityum to not only get through until tourism returns but to help them continue to improve and develop their communities.
The money raised will go towards our fund objectives. Things such as Tsunami/Cyclone Warning Systems, Diesel Generators, Community Aid/Services such as Medical Assistance, food/water, Schooling and Education payments and development projects to help these communities. More info can be found on our Objectives here
