Photo-gallery of Central Vanuatu

From Port Vila, the capital of Vanuatu, we sail to the beautiful archipelago of the Maskelynes. Here we meet the volunteer workers of project MARC (Medical Assistance to Remote Communities). We give them a hand for a few weeks and come to know about the clinics in the Maskelynes, in Ranon on Ambrym Island and in Banam Bay on Malekula Island.
