In the night of March 13th to 14th, cyclone Pam devastated the islands of the Vanuatu archipelago, causing several deaths and great damage. From New Caledonia a few hundred kilometres away, SLN wanted to show solidarity and provide relief for the victims.
The New Caledonian company rallied to help through several actions:
- Donating 2 million CFP to the New Caledonian Red Cross, which is coordinating aid for Vanuatu from NC to meet emergency needs.
- Providing its corporate physician, who is also qualified in emergency medicine, for an assignment of around 10 days in Vanuatu.
- Calling on employees to donate food, clothing, building materials, etc. to authorised organisations or at designated collection points.
Moreover, SLN is involved in organising a solidarity day on Saturday, March 21st for the benefit of the population of Vanuatu.
