Volunteers Serve Individuals with Disabilities in Vanuatu

On Saturday 1 December a group of volunteers from the Beverly Hills area of Port Vila joined with senior missionaries with The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-jay Saints to assemble 400 gift bags for people with disabilities.


The service activity coincided with this week's International Day of Persons with Disabilities.

The bags were filled with school and personal hygiene supplies.

"The kids were amazing," said Sister Debra Roundy, one of the missionaries.

"They put their whole energy into it and stuffed 400 bags in two hours or less. They really did their part to help light Vanuatu and make the Disabilities Day a special day."
