The impact of COVID-19
Although we have temporarily put our deployment of volunteers on hold due to COVID-19 restrictions and uncertainties across the wider Pacific, we’re continuing to recruit and build our talent pool of prospective volunteers so we can return to supporting our partner organisations and communities in the wider Pacific as soon as we can.
We are continuing to work through all our current applications and keep in touch with applicants.
We are also working with our Pacific partner organisations to help determine which skills and experience our volunteers will need once we begin to redeploy people.
