Today the Museum’s Fundraising, Marketing and Communications Advisor Kevin McCarthy, was a guest of Radio New Zealand for their ‘Summer Times’ series. In his fascinating interview, Kevin explains Vanuatu’s vital role in the Pacific Theatre during World War II. He goes on to discuss why a museum on Espiritu Santo is so important to not only commemorating those who served there, but its broader role in improving the lives of the local Ni-Vanuatu population. Kevin has been working for the Museum as part of the New Zealand Volunteer Service Abroad (VSA) programme. He moved to Luganville with his wife Leesa in February 2018 and has been providing invaluable support and guidance to the Museum team since joining us almost 12 months ago.
