Vanuatu. An archipelago halfway between Hawaii and Australia, it’s been under many outside colonial jurisdictions in its history. In researching for my post today, I couldn’t think of a “V” to feature so I asked the internet. It gave me the country.
Then, I found out some sad news. The country was hard-hit by Cyclone Pam. Officials are asking for aid from other countries. International activists are calling on others to provide help to this small nation. The Guardian has a detailed timeline of what’s been happening there.
