Marine Reach Family Care Centre

To Train, Empower, Equip and Send


Marine Reach is currently committed to working in the Islands of Vanuatu, and has been invited to work alongside the Ministry of Health and other government departments. Marine Reach is partnering closely with this nation to help fulfill the Government’s Millennium Development Goals especially in reducing child mortality, promoting gender equality and empowering women, eradicating poverty and hunger, improving maternal health, achieving primary education and partnering for development. As a faith-based ministry, it’s Marine Reach’s desire to share the love of God and His message of forgiveness through building relationship and deeper friendships, through serving, caring and partnering with others. In order to fulfill the stated vision, Marine Reach has built The Family Care Centre, just outside of the capital city Port Vila. This consists of a series of three buildings that will allow Marine Reach to train, equip, support and house local islanders in need of proper resources. It also serves islanders from neighboring nations. This facility is the only one of its kind in the South Pacific Region.


Vanuatu is a small nation of some 255,000 people. This tiny nation struggles to emerge from economic stagnancy and historical social abuse. Marine Reach has been working in the nation since 2004 bringing care and support to thousands through our medical ships and outreach teams. With the M/V Pacific Hope now working in the Caribbean, our Family Care Centre will build on the work of the mission over the past 15 years, providing in-depth long-term care for those in need. We have been invited to partner more closely with the Vanuatu Government through their Ministries of Health, Education and Women’s Affairs to establish a lasting impact on the nation. Building relationships and partnering with others is crucial in sharing God’s love and compassion in Vanuatu. Volunteer staff at our new Family Care Centre will work to reduce child mortality, promote gender equality, empower women and improve maternal health. In order to break the cycle of violence in many Ni-Van families, our staff will be involved in education programs in local schools explaining to young children that violence is not OK. Our new centre is about changing a nation from the bottom up!
