Port Olry Days for Girls

Women and girls in the village of Port Olry have extremely limited access to funds to purchase feminine hygiene products. As such, they must use whatever products are accessible, or remain at home when they are experiencing their monthly cycle. Two Llamas provided 200 washable feminine hygiene kits to women and girls in the community of Port Olry on the island of Espiritu Santo.

 

Port Olry Vision Clinic

There is no optometrist based on the island of Espiritu Santo and – unless a volunteer optometrist is visiting Luganville - people must fly to Port Vila to have their eyes tested and be fitted with glasses or contact lenses. We wanted to bring vision to those who were least able to get assistance: the elderly and young in the northern village of Port Olry; a community of 3000 people.

Port Olry Chicken Coop

The northern coastal village of Port Olry is home to approximately 3000 people and thousands of chickens. However, despite the ready source of protein, many children are poorly nourished. In a bid to help address this, Two Llamas and Vanuatu Agricultural College partnered to gift the kindy a chicken coop; complete with laying chooks flown all the way from New Zealand.

Port Olry Health Clinic Refurbishment

The village of Port Olry is located in the north of the island of Espiritu Santo, Vanuatu. It is the second largest village in the nation; home to approximately 3000 residents. Its health clinic services the village and all surrounding villages in the north, yet facilities and supplies were inadequate to service even the most basic needs; let alone facilitate the safe delivery of babies. Two Llamas decided to do something to help.
