YWAM Marine Reach Ministries

Marine Reach has provided $47,000,000 worth of medical care to REMOTE places in the Pacific. Help us to continue this legacy by coming and working alongside other professionals and volunteers on our medical ship, the M/V PACIFIC HOPE!

Recent Update:

The M/V Pacific Hope is currently in Vanuatu, having left Tauranga in April 2017, carrying crew, medical staff, and DTS Outreach teams!

CYCLONE & CLINIC: The Pacific Hope recently escaped Cyclone Donna by sailing to FIJI and returned to Vanuatu to help. In partnership with the Vanuatu Government and WHO, Pacific Hope was privileged to be the first ship to respond with supplies following Cyclone Donna. She headed to the northern Torres group dropping off supplies to several islands along the way. Their final destination was Hiu, the most northern island where they delivered 350 Jerry cans of water and ran a clinic for the day.

“At first glance it was a stunning island with a beautiful white sandy beach and turquoise waters – but a wander around the village soon revealed how difficult life is there. It is extremely dry and hard to grow anything, and the cyclone has pretty much stripped all vegetation including their gardens, which is their main food source.

 With only 300 residents and no trained medical personal on the island, they were very grateful for our clinic, where our doctor treated around 50 patients including several cases of cyclone related illnesses….

Meet little Zac. While visiting the island of Hiu he was just one of the patients our clinic treated with cyclone related illnesses.
Zac had a wound on his foot that had become infected and Doctor Dynamis was able to treat the wound and provide medication to stop the infection spreading.Several children and elderly patients were suffering from dehydration as a result of water shortage since the cyclone. “

What a blessing to be able to take fresh water, food and medical supplies where they are urgently needed. The medical outreaches begin on June 17- the first outreach will be up north in the Banks Islands.
