Sea Mercy Brings Health Care to Remote Islands

Discover how Pearmund Cellars, a Northern Virginia winery is helping Sea Mercy, a floating medical care clinic. The clinic is a very special program designed to help people of isolated islands. The program benefits the islanders who do not receive help from their local governments due to their isolation. According to the Sea Mercy website, “With over 20,000 islands spread across 11,000,000 square miles of the Pacific Ocean, there are no roads, power lines, or phone systems to connect the smaller, less populated remote islands to the same health care services offered on the larger islands. Sadly, these more remote islanders are left without even the most basic of health care services.”

According to the Sea Mercy brochure, the program seeks to bring medical care to the remote islands of 11 island nations. These island nations include:

The Kingdom of Tonga
The Republic Of Fiji
Solomon Islands
Federated States of Micronesia
The Marshall Islands
The Cook Islands
The Mariana Islands

Sea Mercy provides medical care to the remote islanders who have no access to treatment. It is hoped that eventually the island governments will able to provide help to the remote islanders. Can you imagine having a family member or friend very sick with no medical treatment available?

Sea Mercy needs volunteers and supplies. Everyone can help and Pearmund Cellars is helping in a very special way. The winery has a private label Sea Mercy Chardonnay. Wine lovers can purchase the $20 bottle of wine and the profit will benefit Sea Mercy. Or purchase a $100 bottle of Sea Mercy Chardonnay and be entered for the chance to win a wine education class with owner Chris Pearmund while enjoying dinner at Café Torino.

Check out the Sea Mercy website which is filled with lots of information and you may want to help by donating or purchasing a bottle of Pearmund Cellars’ Sea Mercy Chardonnay.
