WDP 2021-Vanuatu


The Republic of Vanuatu was founded on its traditional values, Christian principles, and the people's faith in God, gaining independence on July 30th, 1980. Vanuatu is a beautiful country of many islands and people of many ethnic groups and languages. The islands have black and white sandy beaches and beautiful coral reefs with tropical coloured fish. The forests are full of lovely birds, flora, fauna and spectacular cascades.

The inhabitants of Vanuatu are known as Ni-Vanuatu. Most are of Melanesian descent with a Polynesian minority on the outlying islands. A mix of Europeans, Asians and other Pacific Islanders also live on the archipelago. Studies predict that in 2021 Vanuatu will have 312,000 inhabitants.

Tropical Cyclone Harold was a very powerful tropical cyclone which caused widespread destruction in the Vanuatu in April (2020). Harold has battered Vanuatu, bringing with it concerns the natural disaster could prevent the Pacific nation from remaining one of the few countries without any confirmed cases of coronavirus. It was the first Category 5 severe tropical cyclone to occur in the South Pacific basin since Cyclone Gita in 2018 and was also the second-strongest tropical cyclone to ever affect Vanuatu, behind Cyclone Pam in 2015.

Vanuatu proudly waves its flag and its coat of arms with the words, "In God we stand". Their faith has carried them through.

The Vanuatu Committee's prayer is that the ecumenical relationship they experienced during the blessing of working together for the 2021 programme will lift up the voice of Vanuatu woman across the world. They stand with the women and men of the world and proudly declare that the Vanuatu nation is built on the Rock of Ages, who is Christ the King.

Their theme of the service is 'Build on a Strong Foundation'

In 2020 the Service came from Zimbabwe; please continue to pray for the people of Zimbabwe.
