Our sincere thoughts go out to our friends and families around Vanuatu who have been affected by two category 4 cyclones; Judy and Kevin. We are grateful and happy to report all of our staff are safe and well, and thank you all for your understanding and patience while we bunkered down, then cleaned up before being able to resume our work.
