Default Can anyone help -- South Pacific

About a year ago I saw a listing that was looking for sailboat owners interested in helping with a public health project in the South Pacific -- I don't remember the details exactly but it had something to do with doctors going to different islands to treat people (especially islands that were fairly remote). Does anyone remember that or has anyone had any contact/knowledge about the program?

There have been a couple of references to Pacific Yacht Ministries in recent editions of the Aussie cruising Mag 'Cruising Helmsman'. PYM sends doctors to pacific countries to administer health care to islanders and I understand it is health, rather than religious oriented. I can't see a web address for PYM, but an email to Cruising Helmsman via <jenniferharris@yaffa.com.au> should produce the goods. Best wishes. David S/Y Belinda
