Young Mormons Lend a Helping Hand at Vanuatu Central Hospital

A group of young men from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints came together to serve the community of Port Vila, Vanuatu last week.

The men cleared rubbish from in front of the ENT clinic, behind the Children’s ward, in front of the medical store and also the Ante-natal clinic. They also mowed the lawns around the hospital.

Vanuatu Central Hospital maintenance supervisor, Mr Paniel Romain, expressed gratitude to the young Latter-day Saints.  

“Every year we always receive help from the Mormons and SDA Church," he said.  “I am very happy for the work that has been done.”

Mr Aron, representing the Mormon volunteers, said, “It’s always good to help out at the hospital because this is where everyone will end up when they’re sick. It's also important that we come out to help, in order to keep the area clean.”

"Mormon Helping Hands" is a worldwide program of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints aimed at providing emergency help and service to communities.  The program reflects the desire of members to follow the example of Jesus Christ by serving others.
