P&O Cruises’ has helped bring joy to children at Port Vila Hospital by transporting play equipment installed by community group, Castle Hill Pathfinders.
The equipment was shipped to Port Vila, Vanuatu, on Pacific Dawn in preparation of its installation earlier this month.
John Nell, Director of Shore Operations at P&O Cruises Australia said their contribution to the project was a great way for the cruise line to give back something to the community that offers their passengers so much.
“We jumped at the chance to help the Castle Hill Pathfinders with this community project in Port Vila,” Mr Nell said.
It is one of our most popular destinations and this is an ideal opportunity for us to say thanks to the local people for always welcoming our passengers with open arms.”
Director of Castle Hill Pathfinders, Sharon Duncan said P&O Cruises Australia’s contribution was invaluable in making the project happen.
“Without the play equipment reaching Port Vila, we would never have had the opportunity to build this much needed facility which will make life more bearable for children at Port Vila Hospital,” Mrs Duncan said.
Pacific Dawn regularly visits Port Vila as part of its South Pacific itineraries.
Pacific Dawn is Australia’s first superliner and features two swimming pools, a choice of five evening dining areas, nine bars and lounges and dedicated children’s facilities.
