The Resilience of the Tanna Baha’i Community After Cyclone Pam

September 9, 2016, in Videos > Documentary, by

“The Resilience of the Tanna Baha’i Community After Cyclone Pam” is an episode of “Baha’i on Air”, a New Zealand television show. It chronicles the Baha’is of Tanna, Vanuatu who demonstrated extraordinary courage and determination after Cyclone Pam destroyed their homes and communities in 2015. In the aftermath of the devastating storm they rallied their efforts to advance a process of relief, reconstruction and long-term development with devotion and service to others at its core.

More information about “Baha’i on Air”, you’re welcome to take a look at our interview with its producer, Ken Zemke.
