Cyclone Pam: Trust Chairman issues message of support
In response to the devastation caused by Cyclone Pam in the South Pacific last week.
The Trust’s Chairman, The Rt Hon Sir John Major KG CH, issued the following message of support:
I was shocked to hear of the devastation caused by Cyclone Pam for the people of the Commonwealth countries of Vanuatu and Tuvalu and the thoughts of all Trustees and staff of The Queen Elizabeth Diamond Jubilee Trust are with you in the difficult days ahead. The Trust already has plans to work in Vanuatu to strengthen eye health and – following the terrible damage caused by last weekend’s storms – these are now being reviewed so that we can ensure we provide rapid and relevant assistance.
