YWAM Ships is delighted to announce that the s/y RUACH, a German-based training vessel, has been generously gifted for work in the Pacific by Mr. Hans-Ulrich Birenstihl of Jurgendheim Sternen AG to YWAM Ships Kona.
Brett Curtis, of YWAM Ships Kona said they were very grateful to receive the vessel, “The s/y RUACH will assist in the very important, long term training and medical work YWAM Ships has been undertaking in Papua New Guinea since 2010.”
Since that time, the m/v PACIFIC LINK and the m/v YWAM PNG have delivered more than 330,000 training and medical outputs.
“This could be another step toward releasing capacity building ships, in partnership with PNG, to reach the most isolated regions with life saving health and training services,” said Mr. Curtis.
The Ship will be operated by YWAM Ships Newcastle. “Our team is full of anticipation to partner with our friends in PNG. We celebrate both the generosity, and the extraordinary work of the Swiss Charity Jugendheim Sternen AG. We are thrilled with the opportunity to build upon their proud history.” said David Stephenson of YWAM Ships Newcastle.
