The ADRA team in Vanuatu has today welcomed a royal visitor: Princess Mary of Denmark.
“What an exciting day it has been for our team and members of Etas community,” a post to the ADRA Vanuata Facebook page reads.
“This morning we were honoured to have Her Royal Highness Princess Mary of Denmark and her delegate visit ADRA’s Elang Family Support Services Centre at Etas.
“Women who have been empowered through our life skills training had the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to showcase to Her Royal Highness the items they produce and sell to earn an income for their family.
“With the impacts of climate change affecting people in Vanuatu, especially women and children, Etas community got to share their story of how they are adapting to the changes,” the post continues.
“We hope that this visit will provide valuable insights into the challenges women in Vanuatu face and inspire further action towards creating a more sustainable, equitable and resilient future for all.”
The Australian-born princess arrived in Vanuatu on Sunday for a visit focused on the consequences of climate change in the South Pacific. After Vanuatu, she will head to Fiji for a few days before travelling to Australia.
