Project Update: Natural Disasters in the Solomon Islands

The recent natural disasters in the Solomon Islands have been disastrous. Many New Zealanders will have seen images of the impact on lives, homes and businesses. It is very hard for people to get back up from repeated events that knock their lives sideways, but we know that people in the Solomon Islands will be getting up again as fast as they possibly can. We know that women and their children especially will be struggling, and can use our support.
